USS pension contribution changes

From 1 April 2019, USS member contributions will increase from 8% to 8.8%. Employer contributions will increase from 18% to 19.5%.

From 11 March onwards, members will receive formal notification of these changes in a letter from USS sent via the University’s internal post. You can check the impact of the changes on your take home pay on the USS website

If you have not received your USS member letter by 22 March 2019 or if you are considering opting out of your pension, please contact the pension team by email or phone 0113 3438823 (x38823). 

The team will also be at the Staff Benefits Fair on 2 April where you can discuss this and other colleague benefits.
