SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS/PENSIONS – STATE BENEFITS
Synopsis: The government have confirmed the deferral rate for the single tier state pension
Date posted: Thursday, July 24, 2014
Further to our bulletin in July 2013 Steve Webb has now confirmed in a written statement what rate the single tier pension will increase at, in deferral.
Earlier this year the Government Actuary was asked to provide a report on the actuarially fair rate of increments for those reaching state pension age on or after 6 April 2016 and choosing to defer their state pension beyond state pension age.
The proposed new rate will be one-ninth of 1% for each week the state pension is not claimed. This means a 1% increase for every nine weeks of deferral or around a 5.8% increase for each full year. The current rate is 10.4%.
