Abstract

Since the early 90's, the Federal Planning Bureau assesses the sustainability of pensions in Belgium. Since a couple of years, it uses a dynamic microsimulation model, MIDAS_BE, to assess the development of the adequacy of pensions. This working paper illustrates the possibilities generated by the joint analysis by two different models that are as consistent as possible in terms of their simulation results, hypothesis and assumptions. The impact of scenario's and some recent policy changes are assessed through both approaches.
