Pensioners in southern Italy receive lowest monthly benefits

Many retired farmers get less than 500 euros a month, study says

(ANSA) - Rome, September 26 - Over half of pensioners in southern Italy receive less than 1,000 euros a month in retirement income, about 10% lower than the national average, according to a study released Friday.
    More than 800,000 retired Italian farmers receive 480 euros or less each month in retirement income, said the study by farmers association Coldiretti, which analyzed 2012 data from Italian statistics bureau Istat.
    This illustrates the need for higher pension payments as well as the growing problem of a city-rural division, said the agency.
