Welcome to the Pensions’ webpages for Imperial College London.  The College offers three pension schemes to its eligible staff and casual workers and the scheme that you are eligible to join will be determined by your job role and/or the grade of your post.  If you are a new to the College and meet the relevant criteria, you will be automatically enrolled into the relevant pension scheme.  Once enrolled, you will have the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ if you so wish.

The schemes offered at Imperial College are:

  • Superannuation Arrangements for the University of London – SAUL
  • University Superannuation Scheme – USS
  • National Health Service – NHSPS

To influence the direction of these schemes and to ensure that the best benefits  are available for Imperial College staff and the wider Higher Education Sector,  the HR Director and College Secretary & Registrar are each individually members of the  SAUL Board and the Employers’ Pensions Forum for Higher Education.  The College also employs a professional Pensions team who are  available to provide information, guidance and support to you as a College pension scheme member or prospective member.
