Your options and next steps
Whether you're thinking about leaving USS or you've already left, there are different options open to you.
See what happens to your pension after you've left USS and how soon you can start taking it.
You can also find out how to take actions such as transferring to another scheme and getting a refund. If you don't do either of these things when you leave, your pension will stay with USS.
If you’re thinking of leaving, make sure you’re aware of all the benefits you’ll be missing out on first. Visit what you’ll get as a member to find out more.
