How your pension increases

Your LGPS pension increases in April every year in line with the cost of living.

Unlike many pension schemes, which limit increases, your LGPS pension increases in line with the cost of living. Although pensions are increased in April, they are based on the rise in the cost of living over the 12 months to the previous September.
