Dear Reader,

Firstly, the FYP Team wishes you a healthy, happy and successful year ahead.

2016 was packed and held a few surprises. But behind the scenes FindyourPension was also very busy and we’ve introduced a personal section on the website in order for you to have the possibility to keep track of your pension biography.


Another issue that we are sure will affect many of you would be the myriad changes to the pension system in the UK as a whole. We have included the Pension ABCs for the State Pension in the UK, and updated the ABCs regarding the University Superannuation Scheme (USS). Both systems have undergone major changes last year which might be of interest for all of you who are or have been working in a research or academia job in Great Britain.

Especially when moving around you should keep track of all the pension providers you have been insured with in order to never forget
‘Who will pay your pension some day ...?’
