Annual Pension increase 2018

The level by which your pension is increased each year is determined by the UK Government and is based on the Consumer Price Index at September the previous year. The Consumer Price Index is the Government’s measure of how prices are rising or falling.

In September 2017, the Consumer Price Index was 3% and this was used to increase pensions where the full increase was to be applied.  More information is available on when Pension Increase is paid here.
