This edition of the OECD Pensions Outlook examines the changing pensions landscape. It looks at pension reform during the crisis and beyond, the design of automatic adjustment mechanisms, reversals of systemic pension reforms in Central and Eastern Europe, coverage of private pension systems and guarantees indefined contribution pension systems. It closes with a policy roadmap for defined contribution pensions and a statistical annex.



Executive Summary

This first edition of the OECD Pensions Outlook takes a close look at the two main trends in pension design observed over the last two decades: first, the introduction of reforms to pay-as-you-go (PAYG), public pension systems such as later retirement and automatic adjustment mechanisms to pension benefits to improve the financial sustainability of these systems; second, the growth of funded private pension arrangements complementing PAYG public pensions. These developments are interlinked, as many pension reforms have ultimately led to a reduction in the replacement rate offered by PAYG public pension systems, increasing the need for later retirement and complementary forms of pension provision.
