The govt already monitor what i pay becayse i use centrepay for everything apart from before/ after school care and food. Some weeks i barely have enough money for food so i go without because i need to make sure 4 others get fed before me. If they took whst remainder i had left i would be much worse off so no they shouldnt

If someone has problems managing their finances, then they should be partnered with a community organisation to assist/teach them.
In severe circumstances, it would begin with the community organisation taking over their finances completely.
Then they would move on to a phase where they got control back, but still had the community organisation monitoring their spending and providing guidance.
The third phase would have them mostly autonomous, but able to request help from the organisation when they felt they needed it.
Finally they would be released from the program and be on their own.
At worst, someone should be in the program for no more than five years with a maximum of two years on each phase. Though it would be expected to complete the program in two years (six months on each of the first two phases, and one year on the final phase).
If someone cannot manage themselves after completing the program, then perhaps the adult guardian may need to take control of their finances.

No, how condescending! It's a sytem that makes unfair, bias, ridiculous, assumptions about people.

I saved a fair amount of money, for 'luxuries' like when the washing machine broke at Christmas it was no drama. I had the money in the bank to replace it the next day.
If the government just gave vouchers that would be hugely limiting. Also what about individual circumstances? Everyone is going to need different proportions of money for rent/food/cash/transport. How would it be assessed without putting a massive strain on an already difficult system.
