USS Proposals for Reform

The proposed changes to the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) are now the subject of a formal consultation with affected employees and their representatives. The consultation will run from 16 March until 22 May.

All USS members, and staff who are not members but are eligible to join, will have received a letter and an information leaflet providing a summary of the proposed changes and further information about how you can access the full consultation information, and provide your response. The consultation is your opportunity to have your say on the proposals. You are encouraged to participate in the consultation process.

If you are a USS member, or are eligible to join, and you have not received your letter please contact Lynne Cameron in the Finance Office (Tay House) on 0141 330 2832, or e-mail
