Pension Indexing for NCMs?

Our Sgt recently informed the troops that only officer's pensions get indexed, not NCMs.  I've gone through the pension info on the official website and I can't find anything that supports this delineation between officer and ncm pension indexing.

Does anybody have any experience that either supports or rejects this?

If that were true, the complaints would be legion.

"Indexing is inflation protection which is applicable to all Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) pensions ..."

You Sgt is full of shit, and spreading misinformation.

Read the CFSA and its related regulations.

Heard these sort of things all throughout my career.

Another one was that Officer pensions were based off more % per year than NCMs.

I think a lot of people (sadly, many of them NCOs) hear something erroneous from a peer or higher rank, and take it as gospel with no research done on their part to verify policy or facts. And of course, the cycle continues when they spread this misinformation to their subordinates...

Isn't that to allow them to more easily pay off the commissions they purchased at the beginning of their service?
