USS cost sharing consultation live

3 Sep 2018

The employer consultation on the proposed increases to member and employer contributions, and the removal of the match, to address the 2017 valuation is now live and will run until 5pm on 2 November 2018.

Both employer and member contributions are proposed to increase (subject to any amendments from the consultation) to fund the current benefits offered to members. The first increase is proposed to take effect from 1 April 2019 and will see member contributions increase from 8% to 8.8%, followed by further increases from 1 October 2019 (to 10.4%) and 1 April 2020 (to 11.7%).

The consultation gives scheme members a chance to have a say and provide feedback.
