As a valued member of the Warwick community, you have access to one of three attractive pension schemes depending on your role - Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), University of Warwick Pension Scheme (UPS) or NHS Pension Scheme.
You will be notified of the pension scheme you are eligible to join in your onboarding material.
Click on the logos below to find out more information about each scheme.
If you are a member of Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS), or eligible to join, you will receive an email in mid-September from firstname.lastname@example.org with details of a consultation on proposed USS benefit improvements (which would take effect from 1 April 2024).
Please do take the time to read the details and share your views through the USS consultation.
The USS consultation website goes live from 25 September 2023, and will include frequently asked questions.
The pensions team at Warwick will consider any staff feedback, and if necessary will add further FAQs to the Warwick pages as the consultation develops.
