Just make one universal subsidy, which people can either save, or live on. if they don't work and save, then they will live their entire lives at that level. if they save, they'll retire rich. it's simple.

Reasons To Agree
I am a great believer in this form of welfare. It needs to go one step further though and diminish down to nothing. My suggestion is one weeks welfare entitlement for each 3 months worked. IRD could easily calculate this entitlement based on tax returns
