Will my State Pension be increased?

Basic State Pension does not fall under the Pensions Increase rules. The Government’s ‘triple lock’ commitment increases State Pensions by the greater of either prices, earnings or 2.5%.
State Pensions are not paid by NILGOSC. They are paid by the Social Security Agency who can be contacted at 0845 601 8821 if you have any queries, or you may visit www.nidirect.gov.uk for more information.
