Abstract

This paper examines the portability of social protection (old-age, retirement, and survivor benefits) in East Asia, particularly in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and analyzes possibilities for bilateral or multilateral cooperation in social security. It discusses evidence of growth of migration in East Asia and the growing need for portability of social security. It assesses existing national social security schemes in ASEAN countries and discusses how losses from lack of portability can be addressed, especially through social security agreements.
