Absence period – how does this affect my pension?


Question:
Absence period – how does this affect my pension?
Answer:
If you are on unpaid leave you will not build up Pensionable Service in SAUL or USS (unless an agreement has been made between yourself and Human Resources to maintain your pension contributions). If you wish you can pay extra contributions to make up the Pensionable Service you did not build up while your membership was suspended. You can do this by paying the member and employer contributions. Please email PensionsQueries@rhul.ac.uk for further information.
