USS Pensions consultation – information sessions

The USS Pension consultation period runs from 1 November 2021 until 17 January 2022. Here is more detail about the impartial information sessions that have been organised throughout this period.

The notice of statutory consultation by employers in relation to the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) was sent on Thursday 28 October to colleagues who are active or eligible members of the scheme.  

The consultation period will run from Monday 1 November 2021 until Monday 17 January 2022. This is the formal written notice of a statutory consultation in relation to USS. It contains details about proposed changes to USS, most of which would take effect from Friday 1 April 2022, if implemented. 

During this period, we have planned some information sessions, for you to join and hear from Mercer, an independent pension expert, about the proposals. 

The purpose of these sessions is to: 

  • remind USS members and eligible members of the key details of the current and proposed scheme 

  • advise about the anticipated next steps in the member consultation process; and 

  • most importantly, give you an opportunity to ask questions of the independent pension experts who will run the sessions.

If you are unable to attend, a recording of the session will be available on For Staff for you to watch.
