Gross pension replacement rates

The gross replacement rate shows the level of pensions in retirement relative to earnings when working. For workers with average earnings, the gross replacement rate averages 54% in the 34 OECD countries. But there is significant cross-country variation. At the bottom of the range, Mexico and the United Kingdom offer future replacement rates of less than a third to people starting work today. The Netherlands at the top of the range, offer replacement rates of more than 90%. Other countries with high projected replacement rates are Denmark at 79% and Austria at 77%.
