AFICS/NY - A Community of Interests
|MORE GREAT NEWS:
to my earlier note and based on the official USA CPI data, the April
2017 increase for monthly UNJSPF pensions paid on the US-dollar track
will be 3.6% (i.e. 0.1% higher than the estimated 3.5% mentioned in my
John Dietz, President
NEWS. Under the UNJSPF Pension Adjustment System, for monthly pensions
on the US dollar track there will be a cost-of-living (CPI) increase of
at least 3.5%, effective 1 April 2017; this increase will be reflected
in the monthly benefit paid by the Pension Fund at the end of
April 2017. (For recent retirees, the CPI increase will be pro-rated,
based on the starting date for the UNJSPF pension entitlement.)
precise amount of the US CPI increase will be established only after
the US CPI data for December 2016 has been published in the monthly UN
Bulletin of Statistics, some time in February 2017.
CPI increase of UNJSPF pensions requires inflation of at least 2%,
measured from the date of the last such adjustment; that had been April
2014 for the US dollar track. For those whose pensions are payable on
the local track under the two-track UNJSPF Pension Adjustment System, a
possible CPI increase in April 2017 will depend on the official CPI
data for their respective countries of residence.
As soon as
it is known, we will inform you of the precise amount of the CPI
increase in the US dollar track pensions as from April 2017.
