Welcome to Pensions


Welcome to the Pensions Website for the University of Cambridge. The University and its associated employers offer 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.
