  Pension - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pensions are typically payments made in the form of a guaranteed annuity to a retired or disabled employee.
These pensions had been granted in every conceivable formduring the pleasure of the Crown, for the life of the sovereign, for terms of years, for the life of the grantee, arid for several lives in being or in reversion (Erskine May, Constitutional History of England).
Pensions are also given to the widows of officers in certain circumstances and compassionate allowances made to the children of officers.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Ecclesiastical Pension
As to the bishop, or anyone inferior to the pope, he may not, generally speaking, impose a perpetual pension on a benefice or increase one already existing, nor may he, in conferring a benefice, make a reservation of a pension to be paid to a third party.
The canons forbid the bishop to constitute a pension out of a certain quota of the fruits of a benefice, as a half or a third part, because this has the appearance of a division of the benefice.
In like manner, while it is simoniacal for an abdicant to stipulate for a pension out of the benefice he resigns, yet he may, for grave cause, request the bishop to give him such a pension, and the bishop may bestow it upon him.

 Fool.com: GM's Pension Peril [Commentary] June 25, 2003
In aggregate, the companies in the S&P 500 have a pension underfunding of more than $239 billion, an amount of liability that is neither represented on their income nor their balance statements.
Further, the nearly $10 billion in losses GM's pension suffered in the last two years are reflected nowhere in the company's income statement, replaced instead by a number that represented what was expected to happen based upon assumptions drawn up by GM itself.
The company you hold, or the one you are analyzing, may have an enormous pension liability that you cannot see on the balance sheet or income statement, but is instead buried in the footnotes.

He contends that the court erred in awarding Gayliene (1) an interest in his future military pension benefits and (2) alimony of $1 per year modifiable only upon a potential reduction to his future military pension by a potential future disability offset.
