The Legislative Yuan will start its new legislative session today, with pension reform as the major priority. Armed forces members, civil servants, and teachers say that they support pension reform, but that measures should not be retroactive because they say such measures are illegal. Some retired generals are planning to stage an 800-person sit-in at the Legislative Yuan starting next Tuesday.

Public worker groups have previously refused to participate in the national affairs conference on pension reform, and instead took their protest to the streets. Now, in an annual meeting of military, civil servants, and teachers, these groups are once again slamming the DPP government. They say that pension reform needs to be more moderate.

==LIN SHU-CHI VP, Nat'l Fed. of Public Servants, Teachers, Military, & Police==
In particular, we're surprised that Minister without Portfolio Lin Wan-yi knows so little about the law. He thinks that if they don't demand back what we've gotten, then it's "not retroactive."

==HU CHU-SHENG Retired General==
For pension reform, legitimate expectation cannot be destroyed. That is the destruction of what our laws stand for.

The DPP's pension reform proposal has drawn harsh criticism from retirees. However, a new poll by Taiwan Thinktank shows that over 60% of the public support pension reform, and that over 70% agree that the difference between pension payouts for public and private workers should be reduced. However, 50% say that pension reform should not be retroactive, while 35% say that it should.

==CHOU YUNG-HUNG Director, Taiwan Thinktank Polling Center== 
For example, eliminating the 18% special interest rate would be retroactive. But a lot of people are for it. So what I mean is, the government should be clearer in terms of explaining their policy.

The Ministry of Civil Service emphasizes that pension reform is urgently needed, because accumulated pension payouts are growing rapidly. Ministry of Civil Service calculations show that the government will be responsible for over NT$1.6 trillion over the next 30 years. This will be an enormous burden for government finances without pension reform.

立法院明天就要開議了,年金改革將列為重點審查法案之一。有不少軍公教人員表示,其實是支持政府年金改革,但不該溯及既往,將已請領的退休金追回並不合法!為此有退役將領已在計畫,在下周二起,動員八百人前往立院靜坐抗議,時間為期兩個月!

日前軍公教團體,抗議年金改革,太霸道,拒絕出席年金改革國是會議,並在凱道前抗議!而上午軍公教團體,召開年度會員大會,不少軍公教團體,再把矛頭,指向民進黨政府,認為年金改革,應該緩和漸進.

==全國公教軍警聯合總會副總會長 林水吉==
尤其那林萬億先生
政務委員沒想到說
他的法學素養這麼差
就是將我們過去領的
沒有追回來就叫做
法律不溯及既往

==退役將領 胡筑生==
年金改革我們不能夠去
摧毀政府的信賴保護原則
摧毀我們所有的法律依據

民進黨年金改革方案,引發退休軍公教人員不滿,痛批改革,刀刀見骨!不過,根據台灣智庫,針對年金改革,最新民調顯示,有超過六成民眾,支持年金改革,甚至,有超過七成民眾,贊成拉近軍公教與勞工的退休金差距,但認為年金改革,不該溯及既往的有近五成,而認為贊成追回,退休金的約三成五!

==台灣智庫民調中心主任 周永鴻== 
比方說取消18%
軍公教的這18%
這個就是溯及既往的
他們很多都支持
所以我的意思是說
(政府)在政策說明上
要更清楚

而銓敘部也強調,年金改革迫在眉睫,因為累計給付金額,愈來愈龐大.根據銓敘部精算,以30年的退休給付發展趨勢,政府負擔金額高達,1兆6千多億,如果年金改革再不啟動,恐怕政府的財政赤字,會愈來愈大.
