Calling all UK Pensioners or those who expect to get a UK State Pension one day. You may not be aware, but, when you get (or start to get) your UK State Pension, you will find that you will not receive the annual increase.

If you’re not a member of CABP, don’t worry, you’ll still be made to feel welcome. There will be plenty of opportunity for you to ask about the impacts of the new Single Tier State Pension that came into force in April Protected content . See you there!
