Universities Superannuation Scheme


Staff on Grades F to I and equivalent will be enrolled into the University Superannuation Scheme (USS) in accordance with their conditions of service. The USS is the national superannuation scheme for members of academic and equivalent staff and is also the auto-enrolment pension scheme for staff on grades F and above, including clinical academic staff. Staff who are already in receipt of a USS pension are excluded from rejoining.

The main USS website provides a wide range of information about the scheme. The section Thinking of Joining provides more detail on auto-enrolment.
