Document What is an FSSN or an FSSU?

Question 8.2 of the AW8 application form and question 5.2 of the AW8P application form ask whether you have ever been part of an insurance policy based pension scheme, such as an FSSN or FSSU.

  • FFSN stands for The Federated Superannuation Scheme for Nurses and Hospital Officers
  • FFSU stands for The Federated Superannuation Scheme for Universities

There are special provisions for the payment of pension increases for members of the above insurance policy based schemes. The special provisions do not apply, however, to members who have already surrendered their insurance policies and transferred their value in to the NHS Pension Scheme.
