In the year 2003, the top up is to £102.10 a week for a single person to £155.80 for a couple.The MIG rises with wages inflation which tends to move faster than price inflation (on which the basic state pension is based) so in time the gap between the state pension and the MIG should grow.Anyone with assets over £12,000 is disqualified from the MIG.

MIG Mortgage Indemnity GuaranteeMIG Mortgage Indemnity Guarantee
This is insurance for the lender paid by the consumer in a one-off payment, on 'high' LTV mortgages. This protects the lender in the event that you default on the loan and the sale of the property is not enough to repay the amount that they are owed. Some lenders will insist you pay this if your mortgage is for as low as 75% of the value of the property, but 90% is a more common level. Some lenders will not insist on it regardless of the loan value. You can often add this fee to the loan, but be aware that you will then be paying interest on it until the loan is repaid in full.
