Basic income 29

Basic income in its most common form—a basic income guaranteed to all citizens—can be implemented without altering people's rights or privileges as citizens.

In practice, an unconditional income (UBI) is often considered one possible form of basic income as it provides individuals with basic income for all citizens.

This post describes how UBI can work for those who currently rely on public benefits, and how their rights and freedoms could be enhanced to ensure that they receive a UBI.

This post does not address how a UBI could replace a range of existing social services, such as those aimed at people with disability and older people.

How an unconditional income can be paid

An unconditional income can be paid either at regular intervals, or in cash.
