If they are on a pension, is it right for his parents to ask for compensation to babysit their grandkids?

In brief: U can ask 4 anything

Often grandparents will be happy to babysit their grand kids for free--to some extent, but some people are not so lucky.
Baby sitting service is expensive, because it is a lot of work. So, on/off, here/there babysitting is often offered as a freebee, but grandparents don't have to do this--not a law, just a common thing. Many don't ask for it, but they have the right to ask for $$$. Good luck.

And if they were not there, who would care for them, and would they do it for free? Sounds like you need to assess your motives rather than their assets for the source of the wosdom of your question
