Universities Superannuation Scheme: Additional voluntary contributions

12 Oct 2007

Are your retirement plans on track?

Since April 2006 it has been possible to save more for your retirement via AVCs (additional voluntary contributions) and to take a larger portion of your overall benefits as tax free cash on retirement.

AVCs can be used to buy extra years' service in USS or to build up a fund using the USS in-house AVC provider, Prudential, to improve benefits within Revenue allowances at retirement.

Prudential, the in house AVC fund provider for USS, will be visiting the University from 19-21 and 29-30 November 2007.

Any member can arrange a meeting with a Retirement Education Consultant from the Prudential to discuss the added years and in-house AVC choices.

The consultant will be available in one of the Committee Rooms below the Whitworth Hall.

Please bear in mind you will not receive financial advice.
