Reaching the ripe old age of 55 - AFPS 75 pension increase

I have searched the forum, but cannot see a thread on this issue.
Having left the RAF in 2004, and being only 5 months away from repaying my commutation, I expect to see a nice increase in my pension soon.
My question is - will this increase be paid automatically, or will I have to claim it some how?
Automatically, unless you have entered the witness protection programme/signed on the sex offenders register or otherwise changed your name, date of birth, sex, National Insurance number or have been re-located by aliens?
Even RAF admin should be able to keep up with all of the above, surely?
It's meant to be automatic. In my case they forgot and I had to jolly well remind them. Funny really, the Army system had had my date of birth one way or another since 1975.
Mine came through automatically - and was a very nice little surprise.
I qualified 2 days ago and received a letter of notification last month advising me of the change and new annual pension
I have another year for my 55th.
May I be so bold as to ask, what sort of a % increase you had?
