annual updates

This page contains the latest annual pension increases, average career reassessment rates, contribution payment ranges, and other additions to the plan. It also includes the most recent Standard Annual Subsidy and Lifetime Subsidy.

Pension increase rates

Pensions paid are increased according to the Pension Increase (PI) applied to civil service pensions in April. PI always applies on the first Monday that falls on or after April 6th. This year's IP will be 10.1%, and will apply from April 10, 2023.

The PI is based on the year-to-September Consumer Price Index (CPI) rate. As the Pensions (Increase) Act 1971 does not provide for a reduction in the public service pension rate, a negative CPI rate will result in a pension increase rate of 0%.

The PI is also used, when applicable, for the reassessment of the final average salary used in the calculation of final salary pensions, as well as for the reassessment of the preferred pension supplement and for the annual reassessment of the average career pension of deferred members.

Average career reassessment rate

At the beginning of each program year, the cumulative career pension average is reassessed, at a rate that depends on whether you are an active or deferred member of the program. If you left the system but returned after a break of up to five years, your pension will be reassessed as active. But if you return after a break of more than five years, the pensions received before the break will continue to be revalued as deferred, with only the new accumulated benefits being revalued as active.

April 2023:

  • Active revaluation rate = 11.7%
  • Deferred revaluation rate = 10.1%

April 2022:

  • Active revaluation rate = 4.7%
  • Deferred revaluation rate = 3.1%

April 2021:

  • Active revaluation rate = 2.1%

Maximum additional pension (pension flexibility)

Members of the Teachers' Pension Scheme can increase their pensions through flexibilities that allow them to buy additional pensions, faster additions or 'buy in' the normal actuarial rate reduction (the 'buy in' must be made within six months of adherence to the regime). The additional pension amount available is a fixed amount, but increases each program year as the pension increases. As it is rounded to the nearest £100, a small increase in pensions may not result in an increase in the maximum additional pension.

For the program year 2023-2024. the pension increase is 10.1% and the maximum additional pension amount will increase to:

  • Average career scheme: £8,000

As of April 1, 2023, all accruals will be on the career average schedule and final salary schedule elections will not be available for any member.

For the 2022-2023 program year, the maximum is:

  • Average career scheme: £7,300

For the 2021-2022 and 2020-2021 program years, the maximum values ​​were:

  • Average career scheme: £7,100
  • Final salary scale: £6,900

For the 2019-2020 program year. the maximum values ​​were:

  • Average career scheme: £7,000
  • Final salary scale: £6,800

For the 2018-2019 program year. the maximum values ​​were:

  • Average career scheme: £6,800
  • Final salary scale: £6,600

For the 2017-2018 program year. the maximum values ​​were:

  • Average career scheme: £6,600
  • Final salary scale: £6,400

For the program years 2015-2016. and 2016-2017. the maximum values ​​were:

  • Average career scheme: £6,500

Limited salary provision - final salary

If the pension payment for the last three years of pensionable employment has increased by more than £7,120 or 10%, the increase in that payment or remuneration will be limited to the greater of £7,120 or 10%. This figure is revised every year according to factors provided by Her Majesty's Ministry of Finance.

Where this limitation applies, any contributions not used in calculating the average compensation will be refunded if the service itself is related to the calculation of compensation in the final compensation plan.

Members who have moved from final salary to career average have what is known as salary tie protection, where career average salaries are used to determine the average salary for final salary benefits. The salary cap provision still applies when determining average salary, but a refund of contributions is not appropriate as members receive benefits under the career average system.

The fixed values ​​for the salary cap per year are:

  • April 2023 - March 2024: £7,120
  • April 2022 - March 2023: £6,446
  • April 2021 - March 2022: £6,272
  • April 2020 - March 2021: £6,241
  • April 2019 - March 2020: £6,136
  • April 2018 - March 2019: £5,992
  • April 2017 - March 2018: £5,818
  • April 2015 to March 2017: £5,800

As of April 1, 2022, all accruals will be on the career average schedule and final salary schedule elections will not be available for any member.

Children's pension - maximum compensation for vocational training

Children are still eligible for Child Support if they are under 23 years old, have been in full-time vocational training (for at least two years) and are not earning more than £3,809 a year.

The amounts, by age, of the maximum vocational training allowance for continuing to benefit from a child pension are:

  • April 2023 - March 2024: £3,809
  • April 2022 - March 2023: £3,459
  • April 2021 - March 2022: £3,356
  • April 2020 - March 2021: £3339
  • April 2019 - March 2020: £3,283
  • April 2018 - March 2019: £3,206
  • April 2017 - March 2019: £3,113

annual subsidy

The standard annual subsidy is £40,000 for members who do not meet the criteria to be treated as "high earners".

With effect from 6 April 2020, the standard annual allowance of £40,000 has been reduced (taken advantage of) for high earners.

More information on the standard annual subsidy reduction can be found in the Taxes section of the website, oryou can find more information about the standard annual subsidy reduction in our notes.

For more information on limitations on the standard annual deduction for prior tax years, see Information Note 3.

lifetime allowance

Pensions The lifetime allowance is a cap on the amount of pension that can be taken from pension schemes – whether in lump sums or post-retirement benefits – and can be paid without triggering additional taxes. The lifetime allowance will be frozen at the current level of £1,073,100 until April 2026.

The most recent standard lifetime grants, by fiscal year, are:

  • 2022./2023. £1,073,100
  • 2021./2022. £ 1.073.100
  • 2020./2021. £ 1.073.100
  • 2019/2020 £ 1.055.000
  • 2018/2019 £ 1.030.000
  • 2017./2018. £ 1.000.000
  • 2016/2017 £ 1.000.000

On 6 April 2016, the lifetime allowance cap was reduced from £1.25 million to £1 million and remained unchanged until 6 April 2018, when it was increased to £1.03 million. It continues to increase each year in line with the annual growth rate of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) in the previous September.


    For LTA limits for prior fiscal years, see Information Note 1.

    Small pensions (insignificant change)

    If the value of all your pension funds from all sources (excluding the State Age Pension and any dependent pension you receive) is of 'negligible' size and you are aged 55 or over (or if you have a GMP pays by the Scheme, 60 for women and 65 for men), then you can choose to assume your entire pension fund in a taxable lump sum ('commutado'), without needing to collect an annual income. Your pension funds are considered "trivial" if they reach a threshold set by HMRC, which can be found online.

    If you want to find out the most up-to-date flat rate subsidy allowed, visit the government website(This link opens in a new window).

    Small lump sum (i.e. small pots)

    From 27 March 2014, if the actuarial value of your single source pension is less than £10,000, you can claim it as a small lump sum. You do not need to take into account any other pension rights you may have, whether they are due or outstanding.

    There is no limit to the number of small lump sums you can receive if you are a member of several occupational pension schemes, all with benefits of less than £10,000. If you have any personal pension plans, the anti-evasion measures imposed by HM Treasury allow you to take up to "three small pots" as a small lump sum.

    For more details on small lump sums, see Information Note 8 in the Pensions and Taxes section.

    Normal Retirement Age (NPA)

    Your normal retirement age (or NPA) is the age at which you can claim your benefits without having them actuarially reduced.

    If you started teaching before 1 January 2007 and were a member of the Teachers' Pension Scheme, you will get some services and benefits with the last payment of the 80th scheme. The normal retirement age for Scheme 80 final wage benefits is 60 years.

    If you started teaching from January 1, 2007 and before April 1, 2015 and were a member of the Teachers' Pension Scheme, you will get some services and benefits with your last 60th salary. The normal retirement age for benefits under the 60th Last Salary Scheme is 65 years.

    If you started teaching on or after April 1, 2015 and were a member of the Teachers' Pension Plan, you will have services and benefits with the Mid-Career Plan. Your normal retirement age for Career Average Scheme benefits is the same as your state retirement age, provided your state retirement age is 65 or older. If your retirement age is under 65, your normal retirement age will be 65. You cancheck your state retirement age on the GOV.UK website(This link opens in a new window).

    You may serve in more than one regime, for example if you had a term break of more than five years that ended after January 1, 2007 or after April 1, 2012, or if you are an active member of a regime after April 1, 2022. If you have service in more than one plan, you will have a different normal retirement age for each plan as described above.
