Veteran pension payments have increased in line with the biannual indexation. The increase will cover pension recipients including veterans, their partners, war widows and widowers. Due to the calculation of pension rates on a daily basis, the first pension paid after the indexation on payday 28 September 2017 will comprise a component of both the old and new rates. The new pension rates will be fully effective from pension payday 12 October 2017. Read about it here Tehan release – Veteran pension set to increase
