pensions linked to certain orders of decoration?

Recommended Posts

I was reading in my books that recipients of orders in Russia and in Austria were entitled to a stipend or pension annually under the old system and I started wondering if certain German states or other nations during the old imperial era also were accorded pensions that were coupled with selection for certain orders of decoration? 
 
With old Russia and perhaps Austria, there were front end entrance fees as well but at least they received monetary pensions for many years as part of their "award."

eurorders , The Spanish Military Merit Cross ,with red distinctive could be pensionada ,that is linked with a life long monetary assignation to the recipient or his mourners in case of the posthumous awards. Today the Military Merit Cross with red distinctive is not pensionada . strangely the  equivalent Cross for the Guardia Civil and the Policia Nacional is pensionada
