Pension Deficit to fall because of Adoption of CPI to RPI

BT has announced that it would be able to get rid of deficit worth £2.9billion because of the introduction of reforms that would remove the affect of inflation on pension schemes. The move would help in reducing the humongous deficit of £9billion.

The deficit would be countered using the Consumer Prices Index to upgrade the payments. The development in short words, means that those who receive pensions would be paid out less than the usual amount of money.
