Why register for My USS?

My USS is for both active members (members currently paying into the scheme) and deferred members (members no longer paying into the scheme) to manage your USS Investment Builder funds. Active members can also see the defined benefits you’ve built up in the USS Retirement Income Builder. If you currently earn, or have previously earned, over the salary threshold (£59,585.72 for 2020/2021)*, have made additional contributions to USS, including the match, or have recently transferred in to USS from another pension scheme, you can manage these contributions in My USS.

If you don’t earn over the salary threshold, you can still make additional contributions to the USS Investment Builder by registering with My USS.

In My USS you can:

  • See the defined benefits you’ve built up in the USS Retirement Income Builder;
  • Review your USS Investment Builder fund choices and choose the investment approach that is right for you;
  • Review your TRA if you have savings in the USS Investment Builder and are in the Do It For Me investment option;
  • Top up your retirement savings with additional contributions;
  • Update your security details, including your password and pin.

Please note: if you are a deferred member and are no longer paying into the scheme, you cannot make any further contributions to the USS Investment Builder.

*The salary threshold for 2020/21 is £59,585.72. This is revalued each year to take account of inflation (the rising cost of goods and services). Automatic contributions to the USS Investment Builder are based on your salary in excess of the threshold.
