On request, Human Resources will provide employees with standard information on the occupational pension scheme of which they are a member to help them plan their retirement. They will also endeavour to help employees to obtain answers to more complex queries from the relevant scheme administrator.
However, the University is not legally permitted to offer financial advice to employees. Therefore all employees are advised to consider obtaining independent financial advice when planning their retirement.
Contact the Directorate of Human Resources:
When planning for retirement, employees should take into consideration any state pension entitlements or alternative pension benefits that they have.
The General support pack has various links to information which will be useful for pension advice.
The University cannot provide information about these arrangements. However, employees who are experiencing problems finding contact details in relation to other pension benefits can contact Human Resources for guidance.
