Document When will my yearly pension increase occur and how much will it be?

An increase to your pension is normally payable if you are over age 55, or if the pension is an ill health pension, a survivor pension for a spouse, civil partner, nominated partner or a child allowance.

Your yearly pension increase is applied by NHS Pensions every April. However the date that the increase occurs in April varies each year. All existing scheme pensioners will be sent a yearly Pensioners Newsletter which includes the yearly increase date and the amount of the increase.

For 2016, the increase was based on the rise in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) in the 12 months ending 30 September 2015. As the CPI was minus 0.1% as of 30 September 2015 the Government has confirmed there will not be an increase in April 2016. However, there will be no decrease to reflect the negative CPI.
