Comments Off on 60% of retired soldiers find pension reforms acceptable: Official
About 60% of retired military personnel say that the government's planned pension reforms are acceptable. That's the word from Veterans Affairs Council Minister Lee Hsiang-chou on Monday.
Lee said a survey conducted by the council also found about 10% of respondents were strongly opposed to any changes to the existing scheme, while 30% declined to comment.
Lee said that due to the unique nature of military careers, he hopes that the minimum monthly pension for veterans can be higher than pensions for teachers and servants.
Lee said he hopes that veterans can draw a pension of at least NT$40,000 (US$1,333) per month, which is slightly higher than the NT$32,160 (US$1,072) for teachers and civil servants.
