Money in need
The principal national effort to make available money to those in particular need of it is through the National Insurance Scheme. Every working man and woman pays a regular weekly contribution, approximately equalled by another from his employer, and gets in exchange a National Insurance stamp to stick on his ‘cards’ and show he is ‘in benefit’. Selfemployed people buy a slightly different, and cheaper, stamp which excludes them from drawing unemployment benefit and non-employed people buy a still cheaper stamp which excludes them from unemployment and sickness benefit and maternity allowance.
