Increase in State Pension from April 2012

10th April 2012 by RetireEasy

Pensioners will receive a boost to their retirement income from today as a significant increase to the State Pension kicks-in.

A single pensioner will receive an increase of £5.30 per week and pensioner couples will receive an increase of £8.50 per week.

These increases will be very welcome following the recent steep increases in fuel and utility bills.

Not yet retired?

You can now include all your additional savings, investments and Pension Contributions between now and your retirement, taking into account increasing these Additional Contributions year-on-year and stipulating whether these are one-off or recurring contributions. As always, you can revisit these projections and change them at any time either when your expectations change, or you have real numbers to replace projections already made.

New useful charts?

There are now three additional charts, further breaking down your assets and income.

Download your data in a spreadsheet?

You can now also download spreadsheets giving you the opportunity to view all of your entered information, and your entire LifePlan in one glance.
