Annual State Pension Increase

Back to all Motions

Conference
2006 Retired Members' Conference
Date
16 June 2006
Decision
Carried

Conference supports the view that to use the information needed to set the increase in state pension in the month of March that year preceding the April announcement would be much fairer because it would take into account any recent increases in costs, rather than using September the previous year.

Conference calls upon the National Executive Council to campaign for the Government to change the date that they use collated data to determine the following years increase in state pension.
