The committee stage of the Social Security (Extension of Young Persons Services and Remedial Matters) Amendment Bill was completed.

This bill amends the Social Security Act 1964 to extend the existing Youth Service to all 19-year-old beneficiaries with children, and 18- and 19-year-old beneficiaries without children who are considered at significant risk of long-term welfare dependency. It also fixes certain deficiencies and ambiguities in the legislation.
