Coverage of Funded Pension Plans

Listed author(s):
  • Pablo Antolín


This paper presents comparable and standardised data on coverage in voluntary funded pension plans for several OECD countries using household survey data by age, income level, and labour market status for occupational and personal pension plans. The analysis suggests that coverage is unevenly distributed across individuals and there is therefore a need to increase it, at least among the young and the mid-to-low income. The paper ends assessing different policies to increase coverage. La couverture de fonds de pensions de capitalisation Ce document présente des données comparables et standardisées sur la couverture des plans de retraite de retraite volontaires pour plusieurs pays de l’OCDE en utilisant des données d’enquêtes ménages par âge, niveau de revenu et type de contrat de travail pour des plans de retraite de retraite professionnels et personnels. L'analyse suggère que la couverture est inégalement distribuée selon les individus et que, par conséquent, il y a un besoin de l'augmenter, au moins parmi les jeunes et les moyen-bas revenus. Le papier se termine par l’évaluation des différentes politiques afin d’augmenter la couverture.
