Recommended Posts

I touched on this and I do suppose I could look it up but being inherently lazy/inebriated/inbred what is the criteria for an MHK to be entitled to a pension and how.much per year

2 terms I think, but no idea how much they get.

Oh I do hope to a deity ( I do not believe in but I'm hedging my bets) would make my day to see who would get to the entitlement stage

Each one pound, is one too many for 90 % of them.

From memory I think they qualify after six months, but you need to be there for 30 years[1] to get the full (fairly substantial) whack - less than that is pro-rata.  But they' re always changing it and I'm feeling lazy as well.

[1]  As MHK or MLC or both.

Full wack after two terms unless things have recently changed.

And there's a widows pension.

An MHK once bragged how they had to 'fight' for that one.

Often, what are referred to as 'widows' pensions are actually 'survivors' pensions and it is the norm, not just for government pensions, for this to include child dependants.
