Local government pensions will increase by 1.2% from April

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
Local government pensions will be increased by 1.2% from 6 April 2015 in line with the government's method for increasing public sector pensions, namely the increase in the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) in the 12 months to September 2014.
Pensions which have been in payment for less than a year will not receive the full 1.2% increase. Instead, they will be increased by a proportionate amount depending upon the number of months they have been in payment.
