How much does a Member of the European Parliament earn?

The monthly pre-tax salary of MEPs under the single statute is, in 2011, € 7.956,87. The salary is from Parliament's budget and is subject to an EU tax and accident insurance contribution, after which the salary is € 6.200,72. Member States can also subject the salary to national taxes. The basic salary is set at 38.5% of the basic salary of a judge at the European Court of Justice.

There are a few exceptions: MEPs who sat in Parliament before the 2009 elections could opt to keep the previous national system for salary, transitional allowance and pensions.

You can read more on the website of the European Parliament, where you can also find information about MEP's allowances and staffing arrangements:
