    Hi guys,

    I was just wondering, did German soldiers receive their pensions after the war? I have heard that they all did, except for members of the SS, and I would just like to hear more details about it.

    Thanks,

    Yes they did.

    War Disability pensions are paid to former members of the Waffen SS.

    I bet all the non-disabled regular SS troops were pretty ticked off about not getting their pensions, although I guess at the time they were probably happy not to be dead or incarcerated.

    I was under the impression that the SS was declared an illegal organization, and they had to form a organization to raise funds for waffen SS vets....the name of it eludes me at the moment

    You were thinking of:

    HIAG Hilfsgemeinschaft auf Gegenseitigkeit der Angehörigen der ehemaligen Waffen-SS

    Non disabled Waffen SS men get nothing.

    As my father passed away before he would be entitled to a pension, my mother still collects pension today.
