Harmonising Male and Female Retirement Age by 2030


  • Alois Guger


  • Christine Mayrhuber



The study was designed to project the effect which raising the women's retirement age to that of men will have on the old-age dependency ratio and on the financial management of the pension insurance scheme for the dependently employed (ASVG). The WIFO pension model was used, first, to simulate a "2019 scenario" which provides for raising the women's retirement age in stages from 2019 (on model-specific grounds) until 2030, as provided by the law, and, second, to calculate an advanced version ("2009 scenario") which considers harmonisation to be performed between 2009 and 2020.
