Human Resources


As a member of staff at the University of Sussex you have access to a high quality pension scheme. Our pension schemes go above and beyond the legal requirement for an employer and provide a range of benefits to you and your family, including life assurance. You will automatically be enrolled into the most appropriate scheme for you when you join the University.

There are two active pension schemes:

1.The University Superannuation Scheme (USS) - this is for our academic staff, and our leadership teams

2. The University of Sussex Pension Savings Scheme (page under construction).

All new staff are provided with details of the scheme that they have been enrolled into when they join.

In addition some long serving members of staff may still be members of the University of Sussex Pension and Assurance Scheme (USPAS).

If you have any questions about your pension, please contact the Pensions Team:
