Pensions are an important and valued part of the remuneration package in higher education and the sector has its own complex set of pension arrangements. Each of these arrangements has its own
unique governance, costs and challenges. The
Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) is one of the largest schemes in the UK and Universities UK, as employer representative, leads on issues for that scheme.
As part of the
Employers Pensions Forum (EPF), we work to ensure that the sector has a pensions strategy that meets the needs of both employers and employees, while aiming to ensure the sustainability of higher education sector pensions in the long term.
