Pensions Increase (Review) Order (Northern Ireland) 2009 comes into force

Implementation date: 6 April 2009

The Order provides for increases in the rates of public service pensions. The increase to be made in the rates of such pensions is the percentage (or in some circumstances a fraction of the percentage) by which the Department for Social Development has increased the sums which 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 7 April 2008 the increase is 5.0%. The Order can be viewed on the OPSI website.
