The Employer consultation on the proposed changes to the Superannuation Arrangements of the University of London (SAUL) is scheduled to begin on 13 July and end on 13 September 2015. The final details of the proposed changes were considered by SAUL's Benefit Reform Committee on 16 June 2015 and will be published shortly.

During the consultation period, employers will consult with affected members of the scheme about the proposed changes and the impact on members. More information is available on the SAUL website and further resources, including a benefits calculator will be available nearer the time. News of local events and resources will also be published on these web pages.

The trustees will advise the consultation response to the JNC over the summer and a final decision will be made regarding changes to future USS benefits. Final changes will be confirmed in the Autumn with 1 April 2016 being the earliest implementation date.

Full information on the Kent consultation process can be viewed on the Kent USS Consultation pages. The USS employer website is now closed although some of the documentation related to the consultation has been made available via the main USS website where further updates will be found.

New staff immigration website launched

Human Resources have launched a new immigration website to provide guidance on our immigration compliance.  The site will provide information for overseas applicants wishing to work in the UK, for our current staff who are sponsored or hold their own visa and for our managers recruiting from the international workforce.

We hope the website provides a useful source of information and can be found here:
