Information and support about the different University pension schemes.
Pension schemes for new and current staff
Under automatic enrolment legislation any employee aged 16 to 74 may join a workplace pension scheme. The University offers three occupational pension schemes which are open to new and current members of staff. Eligibility for each scheme is determined by your staff category.
If you do not know what pension scheme you are in, check your contract of employment or contact the Pensions Office.
Legacy pension schemes
There are several pension schemes that are no longer open to new entrants but continue to serve existing members.
Other legacy pension schemes
Members of staff who were members of pension schemes with colleges who have since been acquired by the University of Dundee may also be able to remain on their former schemes.
- Tayside Pension Fund [TPF] (restricted to staff who were members before the merge with Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art)
- Scottish Teachers Superannuation Scheme [STCC] (restricted to staff who were members before the merge with Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Northern College)
