Jersey's Social Security minister says he wants to change some aspects of the island's Income Support laws.
Senator Paul Routier wants everyone with children under the age of 19 in full-time education to remain entitled to sole parent's component.
He also wants to increase the rates of income support to 3.7%.
This is the mid-rate point between the rate of inflation for March 2008 which was 2.7%, and the earnings index from June last year, which was 4.7%.
If the States agrees all Income support payments will rise by 3.7% in October. This figure must be below current inflation levels though
