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.

Recent pension reforms

This chapter sets out the most important elements of pension reform in the 34 OECD countries between September 2013 and September 2015. It updates and extends the analysis from the 2013 edition of OECD Pensions at a Glance which examined pension reforms from January 2009 to September 2013. The time period analysed here has been characterised by sluggish economic growth and increasing government debt. Countries have responded by measures aimed at limiting public pension expenditure while also addressing adequacy concerns in rapidly ageing societies.
