Only 44 days in charge qualify Liz Truss for this retirement.

Although her short six-week term as UK prime minister collapsed on Thursday, Liz Truss will still demand an annual salary of £ 115,000 earmarked for former prime ministers.

According to the UK government, the Public Service Costs Allowance (PDCA) grants all former Prime Ministers an annual allowance to reimburse expenses incurred in the performance of public functions in that position.

To be eligible for the allowance, you just need to be a former prime minister, which means that Truss qualifies, despite being the prime minister in lowest charge in the nation’s history.

He will receive the allowance every year for the rest of his life.

Truss resigned on Thursday after six turbulent weeks in charge, including an economic crisis triggered by a series of political setbacks by his government.

Insider previously reported that a number of Conservative lawmakers publicly pushed Truss to step down after calling his administration “unsustainable.”

The allowance has been frozen at £ 115,000 since 2011 and remains the same in 2022-2023. In addition, Truss is entitled to a pension of up to 10% of the allowance of £ 115,000.

Truss became only the sixth prime minister to receive the allowance, enacted in 1991 by former prime minister John Major following the resignation of Margaret Thatcher, according to the UK government.

Truss, speaking outside Downing Street on Thursday, claimed she hadn’t been in able to relinquish the mandate to which she was elected and will leave that role after her successor is chosen in a competition for the leadership of the party. He added that the process would be completed within a week.
