Help Shape Your ACC Levies

Help Shape Your ACC Levies

ACC’s annual levy public consultation process begins on 1 October this year, and for the first time features a website where people can submit their own ideas and also comment on proposals put forward by others.

Chair Paula Rebstock says the new website will make it simpler for people to submit feedback and make comments on ACC’s proposals for the 2016/17 financial year.

“I want to encourage all New Zealanders to share their ideas with ACC. Every New Zealander is covered by ACC, and the cost of the scheme is funded through the levies we all pay. All submissions are considered carefully, and they do count.”

“People making submissions through the new website --www.shapeyouracc.co.nz -- will be able to read and comment on ideas and questions raised by other submitters. We’re hoping this will lead to some great discussions.”

ACC runs public consultation on levies every year before it makes final recommendations to the Government on what levies should be for the following financial year. Among the proposals being consulted on this round are improvements to the vehicle risk rating system introduced by ACC earlier this year.

Consultation on proposed levies for the 2016/17 year runs from 1 October to 30 October 2015.
