The University of Limerick's Superannuation Scheme has been recognised by the HM Revenue & Customs UK as a Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Scheme (QROPS).
This means that employees who are members of the UK University Superannuation Scheme (USS) / Federated Superannuation System for Universities (FSSU) may now choose to transfer these benefits to the University of Limerick Pension Scheme.
For further Information or if you wish to consider transferring University Superannuation Scheme (USS) / Federated Superannuation System for Universities (FSSU) benefits from the UK to the University of Limerick Pension Scheme please contact email@example.com to arrange a meeting with a member of the Pensions Team.
Members of the Single Public Service Pension Scheme
The Single Public Service Pension Scheme does not at present accept inward transfers of pension savings from other pension schemes. Subject to feasibility confirmation, the Department of Public Expenditure & Reform is planning to make available both purchase and transfer arrangements in the Single Scheme as soon as possible. It is hoped that details of the planned purchase and transfer arrangements can be finalised and announced later this year.
