The aftermath of the global economic crisis continues to strain pension systems. The UK is going through major changes: full state pension benefits will increase, voluntary savings are encouraged through auto-enrolment, and lump sum withdrawals will be allowed. How does the level of the new state pension compare with those in other countries? How will the pension benefits of those with shorter careers due to late entry in the labour market, unemployment and caring for children be affected? This new edition of Pensions at a Glance discusses these and other pension policy issues for the UK, as well as other OECD and G20 countries.
Speakers: Mark Pearson, OECD Deputy Director of Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, and Andrew Reilly, OECD pensions expert.
