Some 12.6 million older people could be set for a bumper State Pension pay rise next April under the Triple Lock policy, however, while an increase of 8.5 per cent would undoubtedly help more older people combat the cost of living crisis, it will also push an estimated half a million retirees nearer the personal tax allowance annual limit of £12,570.

An uprating of 8.5 per cent would see those on the full New State Pension receive £11,502 in annual payments from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) - 13 payments made every four weeks - leaving them just £1,068 before they reach the personal tax allowance threshold.

Some 9.6 million people on the maximum Basic State Pension would receive £8,814 over the 2024/25 financial year under the Triple Lock uprating.

Jason Hollands, Managing Director at wealth management firm Evelyn Partners, warns of a “policy showdown on the horizon between the Triple Lock and Chancellor Jeremy Hunt's multi-year freeze on personal tax allowances”.
