All University employees have the right to join a contributory occupational pension scheme. Your contract of employment will specify which scheme you are eligible for.
All of the schemes pay defined benefits, consisting of an annual index-linked pension and tax-free lump sum at retirement (optional in some cases). Other benefits include early payment of your pension if you are permanently unable to continue working due to ill-health and payment of a death in service grant to a nominated beneficiary. If you choose to become a member, you will pay a percentage of your salary to the scheme and the university will pay further contributions on your behalf.
