Under the provisions of the above order, the Pensions Increase for this year is 2.40% and is payable from Monday 8th April 2019. April's pension payment will be apportioned to reflect the change being effective from the 9th and the full effect can be seen on your May 2019 payslip.

The full increase of 3% is only payable if your pension began on or before 24th April 2018. If your pension began after this date, a smaller pro-rata increase will apply. You should note that this is not a decision of the County Council. Increases to public-sector pensions are determined by HM Treasury and the County Council has no discretion over these matters.
