Your questions answered on the one-off uplift

Read the answers to the key questions on the one-off uplift to benefits.

The Joint Negotiating Committee (JNC) has recommended to the trustee that a one-off uplift is applied to benefits built up by eligible members between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2024, with effect from 1 April 2024.

If implemented, any eligible member who chooses to opt in to the scheme (or re-join) by or before 31 March 2024 would benefit from this uplift.

  • If implemented, only eligible members will receive the uplift.
  • This information is subject at all times to the USS Trust Deed and Rules which are overriding, and the one-off uplift will be calculated in accordance with the Rules.
