Hi all,

I'm looking for thoughts on this. USS (university superannuation scheme) who are my workplace pension provider have been found to have 17.5bn deficit (up 9bn since last year).
See below:

I joined last sept, so have been a member for less than a year. I've accrued about 5 k + in contributions according to my sums, at 9% of my pay contribution from me, and 19% from the uni.

It's a concern, though the employer contributions are excellent, I wanted to get the feedback of folks here.

Anyone else a member? Any suggestions or thoughts?

Thanks in advance!
