Correction and apologies

On 12 March we published an article announcing that for the 2020/2021 tax year, your pension will increase by 1.7%, effective from 6 April 2020.

We also published a table showing the increase you will receive if you have retired since April 2019, depending on when you started to claim your pension. We incorrectly rounded the pension increase figures to one decimal point which has resulted in incorrect percentages in our March article and has caused confusion for some of our members.

 

We have corrected this in the table below, which is now showing the exact figures rounded to two decimal places. It is these correct ones that were used when increasing pensions in our administration system.

Please, accept our apologies for any confusion this may have caused.

You can check the increase you’ll receive using the information in Table A.
