The 2017 valuation

2017 Valuation overview

Every three years, USS carries out a valuation – which includes a detailed analysis of the factors that influence the scheme’s funding position.

Its purpose is to establish, at a particular point in time – in this case, 31 March 2017 – whether the assets the trustee holds can reasonably be expected to pay the benefits that members have already built up in the scheme, and how much is needed to continue to provide the current level of benefits in future for members still actively contributing.

The process is extremely thorough, and we’re committed to keeping members informed throughout – so we’ve provided links to background information and regular updates as the 2017 valuation has progressed.

You can find these below and in the links to the right.
