Lhe Bureau du plan expects the central index to be exceeded twice this year, in October and December, and twice in 2023, in February and July. The indexation of social allowances and wages in the public service will therefore be indexed the two months following the overrun of the central index.

The annual inflation rate should rise to 9.4% in 2022 and 6.5% in 2023, while the increase in the “health index”, which is used, among other things, to calculate wage indexation , social allowances and rents, would reach 9.1% in 2022 and 7.0% in 2023, announced the Planning Office in its latest inflation forecasts.

The last crossing of the pivot index only dates back to last July. Consequently, social benefits and salaries in the civil service were increased by 2%, respectively in August and September. This year, the central index has already been exceeded three times: in February, April and July.

The Planning Bureau will publish its next inflation forecasts on 4 October.
