The UNJSPF website is designed as a resource for participants and beneficiaries of the United Nations Joint Staff Pension Fund (“UNJSPF” or “Fund”), as well as the member organizations of the Fund. UNJSPF is committed to protecting the privacy of its participants and beneficiaries and to responsible information handling.
The UNJSPF website and computer systems are for legal and authorized use only. Individuals using this system without authority, or in excess of their authority, are subject to have their activities monitored and recorded. If we believe an attempt is being made through the Internet to break into or otherwise abuse our computer systems or business information, we will use the information in our computer logs, and other means available, to identify those responsible. As part of these legal efforts, we may share the information we gather with law enforcement agencies or other authorized entities.
As a subsidiary organ established by the United Nations General Assembly, UNJSPF enjoys the same privileges and immunities as the United Nations organization. Therefore, UNJSPF is not bound by legislation in any jurisdiction, nor by the jurisdiction of national courts. UNJSPF is governed solely by its Regulations and Rules.
While UNJSPF makes every attempt to ensure the information provided on this site and in the Member Self-Service portal (“MSS”) is reliable, human or mechanical error remains a possibility. Therefore, UNJSPF does not guarantee the accuracy, completeness, timeliness, or correct sequencing of information, and will not be held responsible for any errors or omissions, or for the use of results obtained from the use of this information.
If there is a conflict between the information provided on our website and the UNJSPF Regulations and Rules, any decisions will be based on the UNJSPF Regulations and Rules, and not the information on this website.

The Fund takes information security seriously and has dedicated staff overseeing and maintaining the information management systems and all of the Fund’s external and internal processes. The Fund is ISO 27001 compliant and has more than 100 controls regulating all aspects of the Fund’s software and hardware, from cryptography to asset management. The Rules and Regulations of the Fund and the Information Security Policy emphasize and define how confidential data must be treated, how information is to be protected and what measures must be taken to guarantee business continuity if there is a disaster.
We protect your account information by placing it in the MSS portal, which is a secure portion of our website. That is why you have to use your unique and secure login credentials to access your account information.
While UNJSPF works continuously to keep your information safe and secure, you also play an important role in securing your own information. It is your responsibility to safeguard your username and password to the MSS portal.
UNJSPF will never send or ask for personal information such as account numbers, PIN, or passwords via e-mail or text messages.
