Minimum Pension in line with Minimum Wage -  €169.76 a week

Forza Nazzjonali will raise the Minimum Pension in line with the National Minimum Wage - €169.76 a week. This means that the Minimum Pension will increase from €147.23 (for a married person) or €131.47 (for a single person) up to €169.76 a week. (This proposal will impact more than 18,000 pensioners who will pocket more than €8.50 a week).

Points

This is great and fair. My wife and I left Malta at age 42 now resident in Canada. We worked in Malta for a number of years, myself 24 years. My wife receives E45 a month, and when I asked why this little I was told that she should have topped it up, as there was a loophole. We never knew this from Canada. Do I understand that this is going to be remedied. Thanks and forza PN since 1952.

It is logical. If one needs a certain amount of money to live, stopping working does not mean your daily requirements are in anyway reduced. As one gets older some needs increase.
