About the Pensions Section
The Pensions Section administers the pension schemes operated by the University on behalf of its own employees and the employees of 25 of the Cambridge Colleges.
We administer ‘in house’ pension schemes for University Assistant Staff and for the non-academic staff at the above mentioned 25 Cambridge Colleges. We are also responsible for the University's participation in the Universities Superannuation Scheme, the National Health Service Pension Scheme and the Federated Superannuation System for Universities.
In addition the Pensions Section administers the University's hardship loan scheme for students (Loan Fund I).
The office also provides information to employees relating to the BUPA group scheme. This currently offers a 52% discount on standard contribution rates.
