The 10-year anniversary edition of Pensions at a Glance highlights the pension reforms undertaken by OECD and G20 countries over the last two years. Two special chapters provide deeper analysis of first-tier pension schemes and of the impact of short or interrupted careers, due to late entry into employment, childcare or unemployment, on pension entitlements. Another chapter analyses the sensitivity of long-term pension replacement rates on various parameters. A range of indicators for comparing pension policies and their outcomes between OECD and G20 countries is also provided.

Coverage of private pensions

Private pension arrangements have been growing in importance in recent years as pension reforms have reduced public pension entitlements. In 17 OECD countries, private pensions were mandatory or quasi-mandatory in 2013 (that is, they achieve near-universal coverage of employees through collective bargaining agreements). In eight OECD countries, voluntary private pensions (occupational and personal) cover more than 40% of the working-age population.
