Pensions Increase 2024

Date published: 26 March 2024

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 the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The annual percentage change in CPI as at September 2023 was 6.7%. From 8 April 2024 public service pensions in payment which began before 10 April 2023 will be uprated by 6.7%, and pensions which came into payment on or after 10 April 2023 and before 8 April 2024 will receive the correct pro-rata increase.
