SOME IMPLICATIONS OF CAPPING THE INFLATION INDEXATION OF USS PENSIONS

Bill Russell ()

No 261, Dundee Discussion Papers in Economics from Economic Studies, University of Dundee

Abstract: On 1 October 2011 the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) substantially reduced the pension entitlements of its members. The most onerous of the changes is the cap placed on the indexation of pensions where in the event of high inflation the cap will quickly lower the real value of the pension. This paper quantifies the impact of the inflation cap and high inflation on the real value of the member’s pension and the concomitant impact on the USS and universities.
