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 are 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.

Contact details for JSS can be found in the contacts 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.
