"Public service pensions in payment, together with those that are deferred for payment at a future date, are indexed annually based on the annual change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) measured as at the previous September. In the 12 months to September 2017, CPI was 3%. As a result, an increase of 3% is to be applied from 09 April 2018 for pensions in payment and deferred pensions. The UK Government expects to lay the Pensions Increase (Review) Order 2018 in early March."
