As the most severe fiscal pressures have eased in the OECD, the pace of pension reform has slowed over the last two years but the challenges related to population ageing remain significant. Many people aspire to having greater flexibility in retirement.
In the United Kingdom, partial lump-sum withdrawals are designed to offer more flexibility. But with many people having low retirement incomes, does more choice generate more risks and more inequality? How does the UK compare with other OECD countries?
OECD experts will present the 2017 edition of the OECD’s flagship publication "Pensions at a Glance" on Tuesday 5 December at 10.00.
