Welcome to JSS

Joint Superannuation Services (JSS) are responsible for the administration of the Research Councils Pension Scheme (RCPS). The RCPS is a 'by-analogy' scheme to the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme (PCSPS) so follows the rules of the PCSPS.

Whether you're thinking of joining an RCPS employer, are an active member, have a preserved pension or are a pensioner, this site will have the information you need. Please note that JSS are unable to provide you with any financial advice; you should obtain this from an independent financial adviser.

Scheme booklets are available in the scheme guides section.

Every effort is made to ensure that this site is up to date and accurate but a condition of access to the site is that you accept that the rules of the scheme always take priority if they differ from anything within.

We would like to know what you thought of the service we have provided over the last 12 months and invite you to complete the 2016 JSS Customer Satisfaction Survey - external link.

Your feedback will be used to review changes we made as a result of the 2015 survey as well as helping to plan any other changes so that JSS can continue to provide the service you expect to receive.

If you have any comments or problems with the survey, please email .

Do you need to contact JSS?
