Welcome to Pensions

"A Pension Is Nothing More Than Deferred Compensation" (Elizabeth Warren)


Welcome to the Pensions Website for the University of Cambridge. As an employer, the University and its associated employers offers access to a number of tax-efficient pension arrangements for all staff. Your type of contract will decide which of the schemes you are eligible to join; our own scheme for Support staff and the College staff scheme are administered in-house, whilst the USS and NHS are administered centrally – with the University Pensions Office as your point of contact.



The Cambridge University Assistants Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS)

The Cambridge Colleges Federated Pension Scheme (CCFPS)

The National Health Service Pension Scheme (NHSPS)

The Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS)*
