Pensions increase 2022

This news article was published on 19 Dec 2021

Active pension accounts, deferred pensions and pensions in payment are adjusted each April in line with inflation. The rate of inflation, as measured by the Consumer Prices Index, was 3.1% in September 2021. This is generally the measure that is used to increase LGPS pensions the following April and we expect this to be the increase that applies in April 2022. We are waiting for the Government to confirm that active pension accounts, deferred pensions and pensions in payment in the LGPS will increase by 3.1% in April 2022
