Why have my USS contributions changed?

Following the 2018 valuation of the USS Pension scheme and the subsequent consultations, employee contributions will increase from the current 8.8% to 9.6% on your monthly salary.

This would mean for example a colleague on Grade 6 spine point 26 would see their contributions increase from £220 to £240.


Full details of the valuation and the consultations can be found on the 2018 USS valuation pages.

Please note any other pension schemes remain as previously agreed.  If you have questions on pensions please contact the Pensions Team.
