Financial Wellbeing

Financial and Pension Education Seminars 

Whatever age or career stage you are at, planning your financial future is extremely important. To help aid your understanding and take control of your financial future, we are running a programme of free financial education seminars for staff which are delivered on site.

The seminars are delivered by financial education specialists, Wealth at Work, and cover key information on the University’s pensions schemes and a range of broader financial topics. There are different seminars to choose from depending on what stage of your career you are in and what pension scheme you are contributing to.

Please note, the seminars will provide information only and will not include nor constitute financial advice.

If financial concerns are impacting your wellbeing, you may be interested to know that Juice provides staff with access to a confidential staff helpline and counselling service. Please find more information on this service here.


As a member of staff at The University of Sheffield you have access to a pension scheme. There are two main schemes available: The University of Sheffield Pension Scheme (USPS) for staff on grades 1 to 5 and the University’s Superannuation Scheme (USS) for staff on grade 6 or above. Please note that there are exceptions to the eligibility criteria for some categories of staff. 

The NHS Pension Scheme (NHSPS) may also be available in certain circumstances.

More information can be found at our myPension or Pension Member Updates webpages.


As part of the University's commitment to supporting your financial wellbeing, we are working with an external provider, Neyber Ltd. Neyber is a provider of financial employee benefits and is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. The arrangements are at no cost or financial benefit to the University. Neyber is able to offer you a fair and responsible way to borrow money from them at a preferential rate, for you to be able to manage and/or consolidate any existing personal debts. The University arranges the salary-deducted loan repayments and passes the funds over to Neyber.
