The Annual Pensions Increase for 2019 is 2.4%, payable from 8th April, 2019. Your annual pension will therefore be increased by 2.4% from 8th April, 2019 (but please read the Factsheet in our Forms and Publications Section for exceptions to the general rule). Falkirk Council’s pensions are payable in arrears on the 15th of each month. This means that: • your payment on 15th April will only include 8 days at your new rate of pension • your payment on 15th May will be based entirely on your new rate of pension.
