Your Highland Council pension is increased annually in line with the Pensions Increase Order which is currently linked to the Consumer Prices Index (CPI). The increase is calculated in line with the CPI index based on the 12 months to September 2020. As the September 2020 CPI rate was 0.5%, your annual pension will increase by 0.5% from Monday 12 April 2021. Individual letters will not be issued this year, but you can view a copy of the letter and our Pensioners Newsletter for April 2021 here
