The 0.72 per cent increase on base pension applies to pensionable service up to December 31, 2000. For pensionable service after December 31, 2000, a one-time increase of 0.36 per cent on base pension will apply. Please visit the SFPP website for more information.

Pensioners of the Provincial Judges and Masters in Chambers Pension Plan who retired before 2009 will receive COLA at a rate of 0.72 per cent. Pensioners who retired after 2009 will receive COLA at a rate of 1.20 per cent.
