Die Riester-Reformen - Genese, Wunsch und Wirklichkeit

  • Bert Rürup
Registered author(s):

    In response to the changing demographic and economic conditions, in 2001 Germany introduced state-subsidized, supplementary funded private pensions called "Riester-pension" named after the former Federal Minister of Labour and Social Affairs, Walter Riester. Ten years later it is apparent that this approach has light and shadow, and that legislation is required to make improvements. In Deutschland wurde im Jahr 2001 als eine Antwort auf die sich ändernden demografischen wie wirtschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen als eine staatlich geförderte ergänzende private Altersvorsorge die "Riester-Rente" eingeführt, benannt nach dem damaligen Bundesminister für Arbeit und Soziales, Walter Riester. Zehn Jahre später zeigt sich, dass diese Form der privaten Vorsorge Licht und Schatten aufweist und der Gesetzgeber gefordert ist, über Nachbesserungen nachzudenken.
