Subject: [CoreGpIESM] Re: [MilitaryVeterans] Re: ESM Sitrep 12 Aug Evening : Denial of enhanced pension to 'Widows'
The tables on page 94 of the letter implementing the 6PC clearly show that the pension is 60% of the maximum pension of the rank.
It has nor relevance to the length of service.
Government contention is therefore not correct that the family pension is based on length of service.
It was possible to pay the widows the pension of the rank.
