Chapter Two of the report – A framework for assessing the adequacy of retirement income.
Dianna will discuss this chapter which introduces a framework for assessing the adequacy of retirement income. That framework involves having clear adequacy objectives, calculating adequacy indicators, comparing those indicators to clear targets, and assessing overall adequacy with reference to policy goals. The chapter proposes tangible actions for policy makers to apply this framework.
Stephanie Payet, Policy Analyst in the OECD’s Private Pensions Unit.
Chapter Three – Increasing the role of retirement savings plans for workers in non-standard forms of work.
This chapter discusses policy options to increase the role of retirement savings plans for workers in non- standard forms of work, based on the experience of OECD and non-OECD countries. It first describes the characteristics of workers in non-standard forms of work and the implications on their ability and capacity to save for retirement. It then identifies gaps in their retirement income protection given the current balance between public and private provisions. The chapter ends with policy options, distinguishing different categories of workers in non-standard forms of work, to encourage them to join and regularly contribute to retirement savings plans.
