You seemingly failed to see this part which deals with funding so no the UK government wouldn't just blanket continue liability.

"It would expect the Scottish government to make a reasonable contribution to the costs of the State Pension in Scotland"

These guys are living in cloud cuckoo land.

Oh God, not the pensions again. Fully expect to be picking up my pension in an independent Scotland in 2050, with people telling me that I'm imagining it happening.

Spoiler

lol not really, we'll still be in the UK, there'll be no worthwhile state pension, and I'll be waving my wrinkly willy on OnlyFans to make ends meet.

I see the old "ye'll no get a pension if you vote for independence" has raised its head again. Scotland, the only country that won't offer a pension.

Can't afford to, mate. Barnett 'n that, innit. Third world country.

See link above.

It will not be subsidizing anything, because it will be part of a larger negotiated settlement over asset and liability .

However the likely reality is rUK will be paying a good proportion of our pensions for a long time.

Any other scenario is ludicrous and unworkable.

.... this then suggests that rUK will in fact assume liability for our pensions but expect Scotland to contribute an amount subject to negotiation.

 

 

You seem to be confused between funding and paying.  Funding is liability.  Paying is just the conduit.  It may be the case that UK will continue to facilitate the actual payment but now way would they to fund it.

You’ll get your pension from the SG and nobody else.

It will be paid from taxes and NI collected post independence.

Hopefully, they’ll be able to pay it.

This is nonsense.

No-one is saying that at all.  Of course there will be a pension (that may be actually paid to you by the UK, I believe it's more likely to be paid to you by SG).  This discussion is about who will be funding that pension.  There seems to be a belief among certain posters that the UK taxpayer will merrily fund Scottish pensions for the decades it takes until all Scots that have accrued entitlements under the UK are deceased.  It's an insane position to take that SG will have no liability for funding pensions.  It's monumentally naive at best and downright stupidity at worst.

This is over simplified nonsense as well. There will be a negotiated settlement with reciprocal arrangements. See above.

Really?  What part is nonsense?  Do you think that if the UK gov actually would pay your state pension post independence that means they're funding it?

This really is surreal.

It is a bit more complicated than that.

Who will fund rUK citizens living in Scotland and vice versa? How would you determine entitlement?

After reading the excellent FOA summary, it is pretty clear the rUK will assume liability (therefore funding) of pensions of those living in Scotland with current entitlement but expect some trade off in return. (Perhaps debt allocation)

I know it doesn't sit well with the Daily Mail type crowd but that is the reality.

I assume you're talking about the footnote rather than the summary.  If you are that simply sets out the current pension rules.  The article explains that those rules can be easily changed and even describes recent changes to them.

That article in no way claims that rUK will assume the liability and funding.
