OECD Pensions Outlook 2018

onsdag, 02 januar 2019

The 2018 edition of the OECD Pensions Outlook discusses policy options to help governments ensure that people will get the most out of the pension system.

It covers approaches to optimise the design of pension arrangements in order to improve retirement outcomes for members through increasing savings (using financial incentives and accounting for behavioural biases), efficiency (aligning charges with the costs of providing pensions, improving governance, investment and risk management), and the efficacy given different personal situations.

In the Outlook

  • The role of supplementary pension provision in retirement
  • Can countries improve the design of financial incentives to promote savings for retirement?
  • Pension costs in the accumulation phase: Policy options to improve outcomes in funded private pensions
  • Strengthening the application of OECD Core Principles of Private Pension Regulation
  • Improving retirement incomes considering behavioural biases and limited financial knowledge
  • Mortality differences across socio-economic groups and their implications for pension outcomes
  • Are survivor pensions still needed?
