Our schemes

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 appropriate scheme for you when you join the University.

You will get details of the scheme you have been enrolled into when you start working for us.

There are two active pension schemes.

USPAS members

Some long-serving members of staff may still be part of the University of Sussex Pension and Assurance Scheme (USPAS).

This is closed to new staff.

If you have this scheme, find out more about the USPAS.
