Politicians benefit from an incredibly generous pension scheme.
Currently, a 57-year-old politician earning £76,011 can retire in eight years with an annual pension income of £34,000.
All NHS employees have access to a CARE scheme which entitles them to a percentage of each year’s earnings.
A senior nurse earns an average of £35,000 and can retire after 25 years of service with a pension income of £14,500.
Additionally, employees can also receive a lump sum of a maximum £60,000.
