Pensions In An Independent Scotland

"Since the Conservatives are once again trying to scare Scottish pensioners with the threat that they would lose their state pension if Scotland votes for independence, it’s worth revisiting the pensions question...."

"What is clear is that under no circumstances will an independent Scotland be expecting “English taxpayers” to foot the bill for Scottish pensions, and that state pensions will continue to be paid. Indeed the SNP has committed to raising the meagre British state pension in an independent Scotland to a level that will permit older people to have a dignified standard of living."
