The profiles include:

  • Benefit Details: Key information about the benefits the scheme provides for current new entrants, including the scheme's entry requirements, accrual rates, contribution rates, integration, calculation of pensionable earnings, guaranteed pension increases and death benefits.
  • Scheme Ratings: The unique UPS "Scheme Assessment Ratios", which measure the value of a scheme's benefits, enabling comparisons to be made readily between schemes, even those with completely different benefit structures.
