Analysis the time evolution of the rate of return specified for private and voluntary pension funds, investment structure, the economic dependency ratio, the number of employees compared to that of pensioners represent research strategies used (comparative and longitudinal). The hypotheses regarding causal relationship between specific variables private and voluntary pensions are determined causative (to explain the reasons and effects of the studied phenomenon), due to the desire to understand the current reform measures in this area, established by the involved stakeholders. Qualitative treatment of the phenomenon studied allowed us to obtain the relevant conclusions and proposals, required by practical viability and sustainability of the pension system in Romania.
