Superannuation Info: DFRDB pension adjustments for July 2021

From 1 July 2021, all recipients will receive a 1.1% increase to the indexed portion of the Defence Force Retirement and Death Benefits (DFRDB) Scheme and the Defence Force Retirement Benefits (DFRB) Scheme.

The current indexation method for income streams payable from the DFRDB and DFRB schemes varies based on the recipient’s age and the type of pension.

Therefore, the rate of pension increase for DFRDB/DFRB indexed pension recipients will sometimes vary between the two different age groups.
