2016 Annual Pension Review

No increase to pensions in payment in April 2016

The Treasury has confirmed that no increase will be applied to Civil Service Pensions in payment this year.

Pensions in payment are reviewed annually in line with Treasury Orders. This review is called the annual Pension Increase (or PI) and takes effect on the Monday following 6 April each year.

The Treasury Order takes account of the previous September’s Consumer Prices Index (CPI) figure to determine what the adjustment will be.

As CPI at September 2015 was negative, the Treasury Order has confirmed that no increase will be applied to Civil Service Pensions in payment this year.
