Just a reminder that The CPI increase for Fire And Police pensioners is due this April coming.

 

Depending on what date in April your provider pays out you can expect a 3% increase on annual pensions.

 

Also If there is anyone who qualifies and still hasn’t claimed Marriage Allowance do so now.This lets you transfer £1,150 of your Personal Allowance to your husband, wife or civil partner - if they earn more than you. This reduces their tax by up to £230 in the tax year (6 April to 5 April the next year). To benefit as a couple, (the lower earner) must have an income of £11,500 or less.

 

You can backdate your claim to include any tax year since 5 April 2015 that you were eligible for Marriage Allowance.


You can claim on line by going to https://www.gov.uk/apply-marriage-allowance together the pension increase and marriage allowance could add up to a tidy sum.
