USS Benefit Reform 2016

The Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) is changing from 1st April 2016.

USS Benefit Reform Proposal - April 2019

The Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) is currently undergoing it’s triennial valuation, which as at March 2017, seeks to establish whether the value of the assets the Scheme holds is enough to cover the level of pension promised to members on retirement (the liabilities). Due to a substantial increase in the Scheme deficit, the Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC), comprising of employer and member representatives, reached a decision on 23rd January 2018 to consult with members on a proposal for reform.
