See what you can do with your savings in the Investment Builder

The Investment Builder is a flexible way to save and access those savings

If you have an Investment Builder pot, check out the new service that we’ve launched just for you, and take five minutes to get to know all of the options you have as an Investment Builder saver.

You have exclusive access to an independent third party guided annuity service as well as a third party flexi-access drawdown product, alongside all the other ways you can use your Investment Builder savings.

Before deciding when and how to use your Investment builder savings, you should visit the guidance and financial advice page.

You’ll have Investment Builder savings if you earn above the salary threshold or make additional contributions in My USS or if you’ve transferred benefits from another scheme into USS since October 2016.

The new guided annuity service and flexi-access drawdown product provide a flexible alternative to the facility to convert your Investment Builder savings to Retirement Income Builder benefits, which will end on 1 April 2022.
