Pension income

If I take my NHS pension at age 53, will it benefit from index-linked increases?

If you take your NHS pension benefits voluntarily at age 53, annual increases of your benefits in line with the Retail Prices Index (RPI) would not be applied until you reach the age of 55.

However, at age 55 the pension would then be increased to the level that it would have been if RPI increases had been applied from age 53 and will be linked to RPI thereafter.
