The 2017 edition of Pensions at a Glance highlights the pension reforms undertaken by OECD countries over the last two years. Moreover, one special chapter focuses on flexible retirement options in OECD countries and discusses people’s preferences regarding flexible retirement, the actual use of these programs and the impact on benefit levels.

This edition also updates information on the key features of pension provision in OECD countries and provides projections of retirement income for today’s workers. It offers indicators covering the design of pension systems, pension entitlements, the demographic and economic context in which pension systems operate, incomes and poverty of older people, the finances of retirement-income systems and private pensions.

Old-age dependency ratio

The so-called demographic old-age dependency ratio – computed by keeping age thresholds constant – will more than double by 2075. Population ageing has been one of the main driving forces behind the wave of pension reforms in recent years. In 2015, there were 28 individuals aged 65 and over for every 100 persons of working age (ages 20 to 64) on average across all OECD countries. The old-age dependency ratio was equal to 14 in 2050, and it is expected to double again in less than 50 years, reaching 58 in 2075.
