Pensions Increase 2022

Date published: 24 March 2022

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 2021 was 3.1%. From 11 April 2022 public service pensions in payment which began before 12 April 2021 will be uprated by 3.1%, and pensions which came into payment on or after 12 April 2021 and before 11 April 2022 will receive the correct pro-rata increase.
