Please be advised that pensions being paid from public service pensions schemes will increase this April by 2.7%
The increase is based on the government’s preferred measure of the cost of living, the Consumer Prices Index, which they introduced to replace the Retail Prices Index in 2011. Under the RPI, public sector pensions would have been going up by 3.2% this April. Pensioners have therefore lost out as a direct result of this government’s policies.
