It is likely that you should have received a letter by now indicating that from next week there is an approximate rise of £4:00pw. Obviously there would be variations on this given that people have different pensionable qualifications (prior to qualifying to receive pension payments.
Example: Val will receive £4:00pw. She is on a reduced pension due to not having made full contributions throughout working life. Her friend who did make full contributions is also to receive £4:00, ergo, the liklihood is that this is a block figure paid to all pensionable people.
State pension payments are something of minefield and I have little doubt that another member can come straight back and tell me that they are to receive more or less than £4:00, or indeed, nothing!
Basically if you do not get a letter soon I would make enquiries with the appropriate dept. for N.I.
