Will all pensioners have their pensions increased?

Not all pensioners will have their benefits increased at the same time: if you entered retirement on or before March 2004, your increase will be paid out at the end of June; if you started your pension later, you will not receive the increase until the end of July. In either case, the increase is paid automatically.
