Date published: 31 March 2020

The Department of Finance has made an order to provide for increases in the rates of Northern Ireland public service pensions. The increase reflects annual changes in the cost of living as measured by CPI. The annual percentage change in CPI as at September 2019 was 1.7 per cent. From 6 April 2020 public service pensions in payment which began before 7 April 2019 will be upgraded by 1.7 per cent, and pensions which came into payment on or after 7 April 2019 and before 6 April 2020 will receive a pro-rata increase.
