Pensions Increase (Review) Order (Northern Ireland) 2008 comes into force

Implementation date: 7 April 2008

The Order increases the rates of public service pensions in Northern Ireland. The increase is the percentage by which the Department for Social Development has increased the sums that are the additional pensions in long-term benefits, namely the additional pension entitlements accruing to employees in respect of their earnings after 5 April 1978. For pensions which began before 9 April 2007 the increase is 3.9%. For pensions which began on or after 9 April 2007 the increase varies. The Order can be viewed on the OPSI website.
