I will discuss what kind of physics beyond the Standard Model can be probed with nuclear beta decays, neutron beta decay and other low-energy processes. Using a model-independent description I will review the degree of complementarity between the different experiments and which ones are the most sensitive. A direct comparison with LHC searches can be performed assuming that the new interactions are mediated by very heavy particles. We find that depending on the interaction the LHC bounds are stronger or weaker than those from beta decays, showing a clear complementarity between both searches.
