You should notice an increase in take home pay this month if you pay into USS. Contributions have dropped and benefits increased.

Many of our members participated in industrial action last year to restore pension benefits lost in April 2022 because of the decisions of UK universities. It worked. Pension contribution rates have been reduced from 9.8% to 6.1% AND benefits restored to pre-2022 levels AND losses incurred by staff over the past two years is being returned.

Collective action does work. Join a Union.
