The 2018 valuation is being undertaken by the USS Trustee following feedback from UUK that the majority of USS employers were supportive of the Joint Expert Panel (JEP) recommendations, which were not included in the 31 March 2017 valuation. USS has recently written to members about the outcomes of the 2017 valuation, which include the withdrawal of the 1% employer match and the phased increase of both member and employer contributions between April 2019 and April 2020.

More information about the 2017 and 2018 valuations is available on the USS website:
