Proud Infidel ranting about the ongoing war against democratic and secular values (Don't fool yourselves)! Maybe a voice of sanity in a wide ocean of madness.

ÄFS

Did not know this. It's, it's, it's...

ÄFS- short for Äldreförsörjningsstöd (elderly income support) are being given to "next of kin immigrant residents" who are over the age of 65 when entering Sweden. They are being given residency automaticly and ÄFS, which could be as much as up to 10 500 SEK ($ 1350) a month tax free! Without ever having paid a singel SEK in taxes, and on top of what ever pensions they get from their home country.

My projected folk pension is 10500 SEK before taxes! (That could of course change over the years. But I'm not holding my breath. Not when the (social democratic) government stealed 100 biljon SEK from the pension funds to balance the state finances.

Many pensioneres today lives on 5000 SEK ($630) a month and now the sitting government are planning to lower the pensions because of money shortage in the pension funds.

Yupp! That's the wellfare state for you...

Let me see if I understand this. "...next of kin immigrant residents" get to receive money from a pension fund they paid NOTHING into? Is that right? What the heck is wrong with Sweden?! But I can't complain about Sweden. Under Barack Obama America is headed in the same direction. Lord help us!

Yupp, you got it right there. Swedish people who might have worked their whole lifes (especially women and the disabeled) will get less than "Achmeds Grandma" so to speak.
Even more distressing is that the ten and a half grand would equal more than double the amount in salary if they would have worked (before taxes).
That's more than the average nurse makes and on par with what a police officer or a fire fighter earns.

Just to be clear. The figures in my comments abowe of salaries are the average salaries. The end salaries can be quite higher. But still!
