Pensions Increase 2021

Date published: 07 April 2021

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 2020 was 0.5%. From 12 April 2021 public service pensions in payment which began before 6 April 2020 will be uprated by 0.5%, and pensions which came into payment on or after 6 April 2020 and before 12 April 2021 will receive the correct pro-rata increase.
