Non-club transfers


USS is no longer accepting applications to investigate non-club transfers into the USS Retirement Income Builder.

Non-club transfers refer to any transfers-in from a scheme which is not a member of the Public Sector Transfer Club.

Transfers-in from a member of the Public Sector Transfer Club are subject to different rules and you can find more information here.

If you have already submitted a transfer request form prior to 20 May 2016 you will still be able to complete the transfer-in process, provided that your former scheme provides the transfer value and other requested information to USS by no later than 15 July 2016. This is to enable sufficient time for USS to calculate the corresponding credit and acquire your acceptance.

Quotations will be sent to the Pensions Contact at your employer once received and they will contact you to pass on the information. Your acceptance of the transfer must be received by USS by 9 September 2016 and the final date for payments to USS from your other pension scheme must be made by 30 September 2016. Beyond this date transfers-in to USS will only be accepted into the new USS Investment Builder; more details about this option will be available in the summer.

More information on transfers-in is available here.
