The Pensioner and Beneficiary Living Cost Index (PBLCI) is used to adjust the [glossary:maximum basic rate:475] (MBR) of pension where movement in the PBLCI is greater than movement in the [glossary:consumer price index:622]  (CPI) for the relevant indexation period. The PBLCI specifically measures changes in the cost of living experienced by pensioner and beneficiary households to ensure that pension rates keep up with the changes in their cost of living. Movements in the CPI will be compared to movements in the PBLCI and the pension MBR will be indexed in line with the higher of these two indexes before benchmarking to [glossary:male total average weekly earnings (MTAWE):205].
