Pensions Increase 2023

Date published: 31 March 2023

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 2022 was 10.1%. From 10 April 2023 public service pensions in payment which began before 11 April 2022 will be uprated by 10.1%, and pensions which came into payment on or after 11 April 2022 and before 10 April 2023 will receive the correct pro-rata increase.
