Additional Pension Scheme
Many people who get pension from the Central Government do not know about the Additional Pension Scheme. The Central Government gives additional pension for the betterment of old age of its employees. Additional pension scheme can be availed when the pensioner attains the age of 80 years. This scheme was launched by the Department of Pension and Pensioners Welfare (DOPPW India) about 3 years back. DoPPW has given some guidelines to avail this service through a tweet on Twitter.
Under the Central Government Additional Pension Scheme, pensioners above 80 years of age can get a maximum pension of Rs 1.25 lakh and a minimum of Rs 9,000 per month.

Once, when the pensioner turns 80 years or more, the additional pension is increased between 20-100 per cent of what a retired government employee would get. The amount of family pension is also 30 percent of the last payment of a serviceman.
This scheme comes into force as soon as the pensioner turns 80. For example, if a family pensioner turns 80 in the month of August 2021, then he starts getting new pension from that month.
