This section is for those receiving a pension from the Lothian Pension Fund.
Pension Payments - December 2016
The pension payments were made into the bank as normal on 15 December. However, the name associated with the payment maybe The City of Edinburgh Council or No 2 Account. This was an IT issue but has not affected your payment so you do not need to contact us.
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 2016, the Consumer Price Index was 1% and this is the amount that is expected to be used to increase pensions where the full increase is to be applied. Her Majesty’s Treasury will only confirm the amount in 2017 therefore we will update the website when confirmation has been received and let you know the amount in your April payslip.
