The former Luxembourg PM will receive the huge sum if he serves just one five-year term as Commission chief. Brussels’ top bureaucrat will then pocket a £52,500 pension for life. Arch-federalist Mr Juncker will get a basic salary of £245,629 a year worth more than £1.2million over a five-year term and dwarfing David Cameron’s £142,500 annual pay packet. On leaving office he receives a £20,469 resettlement allowance, a transitional allowance of £98,252 for three years, plus his pension.
