Abstract

[fre] La neutralité actuarielle appliquée aux régimes de retraite par répartition est souvent vue comme un moyen d'inciter les travailleurs à reporter leur décision de départ en retraite. Si en introduire une certaine dose à la marge est une bonne idée, il est néanmoins illusoire de penser que cela permet de faire l'impasse sur une réforme du système : une réflexion sur l'âge pivot, l'équilibre financier, les taux de remplacement demeure indispensable. Quant à la neutralité en niveau, elle pose un certain nombre de problèmes notamment en termes de redistributivité et d'équité intra et intergénérationnelles. Classification JEL : H55, J22, J26 [eng] Actuarial fairness, an elegant concept but tricky to be implemented Actuarial fairness of PAYG pensions systems is often seen as a way to provide workers incentives to delay their retirement decision. If introducing it at the margin is a good idea, it cannot be substituted to a reform of the system, as thought must still be given about pivot age, as well as about financial equilibrium and replacement rates. As for a pure actuarial scheme, it raises problems for redistribution and equity both within and between generations. JEL classification : H55, J22, J26
