Both the College and the UK Government try to help you plan for your future retirement by offering ways for you to save for retirement, and there are also insurance companies, banks and building societies that offer ways for you to make your own personal savings arrangements.

When you come to work at Imperial College you may be eligible to join one of the College's occupational pension schemes. You could then build up pension benefits from both your Imperial College occupational pension and the state pension scheme.

Your terms of employment will explain whether you are eligible for one of the College’s pension scheme and more information about the pension schemes the College offers is available on our dedicated Pension Schemes pages. Information specific to those staff joining us from overseas (or working overseas for the College) is also available on a Pensions for overseas staff page.
