Data protection

USS takes considerable care to ensure that it complies with the Data Protection Act 1998 in respect of the personal information it holds.

As part of the activities USS may carry out in relation to its members' pensions, USS may need to disclose the information it holds about you to:
  • its advisers (for example, actuaries);
  • employers who are part of the scheme (including any one or more employers that you are currently employed by);
  • any institution where you may be starting employment.
As part of administering the scheme, USS may also permit your former USS employers to access certain information that USS holds about you for a reasonable period of time after you have left employment with them, to allow information to be reconciled and any queries to be dealt with.

USS takes great care to ensure that the information it holds about you is held securely and requires that this is also the case if USS needs to pass any information about you to a third party engaged by USS to assist in the activities outlined above.

For further information on the information we collect about you and the security of your information, read the Privacy Policy on our website.

If you have any queries in relation to the above or about how USS handle or use your information please contact USS's data protection officer on 0151 227 4711
