The Department of Finance has made an Order to provide for increases in the rates of Northern Ireland public service pensions. The annual percentage change in the consumer price index (CPI) as at September 2017 was 3 per cent, the Order increases public service pensions in payment in Northern Ireland by 3 per cent with effect from 9 April 2018. Therefore from 9 April 2018 public service pensions in payment which began before 10 April 2017 will be uprated by 3 per cent, and pensions which came into payment on or after 10 April 2017 and before 9 April 2018 will receive the correct pro-rata increase.
