Employers Pensions Forum

The Employers Pensions Forum (EPF) was established by GuildHE, Universities UK (UUK) and UCEA in 2007 as a broad based forum for HEIs to discuss current and longer term pensions issues and to develop a strategy that will enable the HE sector to continue to offer staff access to high quality pensions schemes as an important part of the total remuneration package.

Membership of the Forum consists of representatives drawn from Vice-Chancellors, Finance Directors, HR Directors, Registrars and Chairs of Governing bodies, all with considerable experience in this area. The current EPF Chair is Professor Koen Lamberts, Vice-Chancellor of the University of York.

The EPF has two sub committees:

USS Group which focuses on the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS) of which the majority of individual members can be found working in pre-92 HEIs.

Local Government and Teachers' Schemes Group which focuses on the various Teachers’ Pension Schemes and the Local Government Pension Schemes (LGPS) operating around the UK which are mainly offered to staff working in post-92 HEIs.
