Introduction to pensions

This course is aimed at existing pensions reps or other branch reps or officers who are currently or will be offering support to members with pensions enquiries. Every branch should have a least one pensions representative to be able to give a specialist level of advice to members locally.

This is a two day course delivered in one block.

Why attend?

The course will help you to understand both the Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS) and the University Superannuation Scheme (USS). 

The course will focus on:

  • changes to these schemes
  • how pensions are calculated
  • additional pensions benefits
  • ill health and redundancy issues
  • pension developments and communications in your branch.
