Public service pensions in payment, together with those that are deferred for payment at a future date, are indexed annually based on the annual change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) measured as at the previous September. In the 12 months to September 2018, CPI was 2.4%. As a result, an increase of 2.4% is to be applied from 08 April 2019 for pensions in payment and deferred pensions. The UK Government expects to lay the Pensions Increase (Review) Order 2019 in March.
