Pension Increases

Your pension is reviewed annually and index-linked in the same way as public sector pensions. This increase applies to pensions for surviving spouses, dependants and eligible children.

The annual increase, prescribed by the government and usually effective each April, reflects the change in both the Retail Prices Index and Consumer Price Index over the 12 months up to the previous September.

The BPAS scheme rules identify which element will be increased in line with the Retail Price Index and which element will be increased in line with the Consumer Price Index.
