The Grand coalition is divided, with regard to in the coalition agreement of the basic pension. In essence, it is a question of whether hundreds of thousands of recipients of social benefits, or millions of pensioners are to be favored.

CSU-Chef Söder a competition to submit concept ...
... the plans of the SPD-Minister healing to a basic pension.The concepts in the Short-Overview
CSU-concept provides that recipients may retain from basic security up to the age of 212 euros per month from her state pension. Today, this applies only if you are prepared for Riester or occupational pensions. The new exemption amounts will apply if you have at least accumulated 35 years of contributions. The CSU is anticipating a cost of around 445 million euros in the year. About 175,000 people would benefit accordingly. An additional Allowance to recipients of mothers ' pensions - these, too, should not be the reason for backup is credited. For this purpose, the CSU anticipates a cost of 50 to 60 million euros and up to 60,000 beneficiaries. In addition, the CSU wants to increase the assets that are allowed to keep basic security recipients, from 5000 to 15,000 euros tripled.
arguments of the CSU: Söder pension policy casts healing "with the watering can" - the Background is the cost. A medium single-digit billion amount per year to the cost of salvation the basic pension. The Chairman of the CSU, Alexander Dobrindt, said in the "Bild am Sonntag": "the proposal of the SPD, the basic pension is not means-tested, we would be stuck in the future, in addition to ten times as much money in new social spending, such as in the research of artificial intelligence." Nevertheless, Söder for the CSU concept takes in to claim: "no one should feel at the end of a long life, power of being deported and fear of poverty in old age."

You have to work for 40 years for a low-wage and contributions paid, a monthly pension of 640 euros, would increase the references to 977 euros. You can land at high Rent even with a significantly increased pension under basic security level, should be added to the housing allowance to an allowance.
advantages and disadvantages : the Aims, the basic pension only basic security recipients, would benefit only the truly needy. However, all of those will definitely go empty, and respect for, shame or ignorance is no basic security. In the case of Minister healing to a lot more people to receive higher compensation - specifically, he wants to dispense with a means test. Also for example, if a wife has a well-to-do man, might be upgraded to your pension anyway. The Union insists, however, on such an examination - as it says in the coalition agreement.
