Cash payments, otherwise known as Uncrystallised Funds Pension Lump Sums (UFPLS), are a flexible way of taking money from your Investment Builder pot.
You can take up to four cash payments from your pot each calendar year and leave the rest invested. This means you can access your savings before you retire, and you don’t have to take them at the same time you take your Retirement Income Builder benefits or transfer out of USS to access them.
You can then continue to pay into your pot whilst you’re an active USS member, but not yet retired. So your savings could continue to grow*.
