TOPIC: Proposed Benefit and Pension Rates 2016 to 2017.

Proposed Benefit and Pension Rates 2016 to 2017. 10 months 4 weeks ago #145188

For what they're worth, here are : The Proposed Benefit and Pension Rates 2016 to 2017.

These annual benefit "upratings" should take effect from Monday 04/04/16.

No, I haven't posted 2015/2016 benefit rates by mistake !!

Due to : The CPI being 0% in September 2015, which is the CPI figure that they use for the annual benefit uprating for the following "benefit year", AA, DLA, PIP and ESA rates will remain the same for 2016/2017 !

This means that only the “triple locked” benefits, such as State Pension will increase. !!

Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems
