The 2019 edition of Pensions at a Glance highlights the pension reforms undertaken by OECD countries over the last two years. Moreover, two special chapters focus on non-standard work and pensions in OECD countries, take stock of different approaches to organising pensions for non-standard workers in the OECD, discuss why non-standard work raises pension issues and suggest how pension settings could be improved.

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.

Non-standard forms of work and pensions

This chapter looks into pension arrangements for non-standard workers across OECD countries. Non-standard workers are defined as workers not covered by full-time open-ended contracts, i.e. part‑time, temporary or self‑employed workers, in particular those undertaking new forms of work. The analysis starts with describing the relevant characteristics of non‑standard workers, then it depicts related pension issues and details the specific pension rules applying to them. These lead to discussing policy options on how to make pension systems more inclusive given transforming labour markets. The chapter fits into a broader OECD work stream focused on the Future of Work and the Future of Social Protection.
