Large UK firms are being urged by the Government to sign up to “payrollgiving” schemes. Payroll giving enables workers to make charity donations from their grosspay, before tax. The Inland Revenue is encouraging employers to sign up by adding 10 per centto all donations until April 2003. One employer benefiting from running a payroll giving scheme is Andersen,which has more than 400 employees donating over £150,000 to charity each year. “It boosts staff morale, improves employee relations and ensurescharities get more,” said HR director Judith Hardy. www.inlandrevenue.gov.uklast_img read more

Thank you Representative Donald Payne Jr

first_imgDear Editor:On behalf of the thousands of AARP members and their families in his Congressional district, we thank Representative Donald Payne Jr. for listening to his constituents and opposing the AHCA. AARP is proud to have helped lead the fight against AHCA. This health care bill would have meant higher costs and less coverage for New Jerseyans. Congressman Payne ’s opposition to this bill helps ensure insurance companies won’t be imposing an ‘age tax’ on older Americans, Medicare trust funds won’t be diminished to provide a tax cut for the wealthy, and insurance and drug companies won’t be getting the giveaways and sweetheart deals the bill would have provided. We applaud Congressman Payne for showing leadership in publicly opposing this harmful bill and hope he can use that leadership to work with his colleagues to focus on the issues important to older Americans and their families, including: protecting and improving Medicare’s benefits and financing; providing access to affordable quality coverage; preventing insurers from engaging in discriminatory practices; lowering prescription drug costs; providing new incentives to expand home and community based services; and strengthening efforts to fight fraud, waste, and abuse.Dave Mollen AARP New Jersey State Presidentlast_img read more
