Pensions Increase 2017/18

Public service pensions in payment, together with those that are deferred for payment at a future date, are indexed annually based on the annual change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) measured as at the previous September. In the 12 months to September 2016, CPI was 1%. As a result, an increase of 1% is to be applied from 10 April 2017 for pensions in payment and deferred pensions. The UK Government expects to lay the Pensions Increase (Review) Order 2017 later this month.
