USS pension changes

USS pension changes

Introduction

Universities and employees across the UK have been in negotiations over the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) pension scheme since March 2017.

Most recently, this has centred on the conclusion of the 2018 valuation, with the national Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) approving a rise in staff pension contributions.

On these pages you will find information for staff about the recent changes and proposals, what the University's Executive Group has been doing in response and some background information on what has been happening with the Scheme since March 2017.
