Former judges have begun to receive their enhanced pensions. But former ministers are still waiting on theirs. Former judges, including former chief justices, began to receive their increased pensions in their bank accounts late last week. The amounts paid were arrears which dated from June 25, when the measure was passed in the Parliament.
In June, the finance minister piloted the Miscellaneous Provisions Bill which amended the President’s Emoluments Act, Prime Minister Pension Act, Judges Salaries and Pensions Act, Retiring Allowances Legislative Service Act in the House of Representatives and the Senate, where it was passed.
