The consultation process between the University and all current and eligible members of USS has now opened, running from 3 September until 2 November at 17.00.
Consultation will consider the cost-sharing proposal required to complete the latest pension valuation, details of which can be found on the dedicated USS consultation website. This consultation is entirely separate to, and will run in parallel with, the work of the Joint Expert Panel (JEP), set up to independently assess the basis of the 2017 valuation.
Several channels of communication have been created to facilitate the local consultation including meetings with staff and union representatives, University-wide communications and Kent’s own dedicated website.
Any questions that cannot be answered by the consultation materials and website can be asked by emailing the Kent HR Consultation team at email@example.com
