New benefits planned for disabled people in Poland

Polish deputies on Friday backed plans to give disabled people unable to care for themselves a new welfare payout of PLN 500 (USD 132, EUR 117) a month.

The benefits, dubbed “500-plus for disabled people," are among a swathe of initiatives by the country’s governing conservatives to help poorer and disadvantaged members of society.

The new payouts are expected to come into force on October 1.

Poland is due to hold parliamentary elections in October or November.

The governing conservative Law and Justice party won a landslide in elections in late 2015 and will be bidding for a second term in power.

Poland's president in May signed into law a plan to offer benefits to all families with children under the government’s expanded “Family 500+” initiative.

Poland spends 2.7 percent of its GDP on state benefits for families and children—one of the highest figures in the 28-nation European Union, according to a report.
