Working or retiring overseas

See how your pension works if you’re working or planning to retire overseas, or you’re coming to the UK for a new role

The effect on your pension

Considering working or retiring overseas? Or heading to the UK for a job? We can help you understand how this could impact your pension.

Let’s say you work for your UK employer overseas: you may be able to join USS or, if you’re already in the scheme, carry on building your pension with us. Or if you think you’ll only be working in the UK for a short period, you may still want to contribute to USS to build benefits towards your future savings goals.

And even if you’re thinking of retiring to the other side of the world, we’ll still be able to pay your pension to you.

Take a look at the Working or retiring overseas factsheet to find out everything you need to know about how this could affect your pension.
