Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Slmz, Is a person allowed to collect pension from the government?


Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

Yes, one is allowed to collect pension from the government, as this payment is considered to be a favour from the government to its aged citizens especially those who have contributed taxes to the government over the years.
