Reply To: % Uprating for Occupational Pensions at EOY


Hello – A13/2009 – the document deals with performance data for SHBE etc but if you look at the FAQ at the end of the document and point 28 “Uprating of occupational/private pensions” – seems that other authorities previously were using their own iniative to uprate pension income and then if the claimant came back with correct then it would be treated as a revision.

We don’t do it as part of the uprating, but, if someone provides their local government pension pay advice (for example) for April then we use this to apply the increase as per the pension order and from the effective date and then advise them to provide evidence of the May/June payment if our calculation is wrong.
