Pension Day 2017

The annual Netspar Pension Day was held at the Beatrix Theater on Friday, October 13. It was an occasion to present the latest findings from a great many research projects affiliated with Netspar. A number of senior researchers were joined by a predominance of young researchers, such as PhD students and post-docs, who presented their work to an audience of scientists and industry professionals for the first time. The topics on the roster were not all traditional Netspar subject matter; there was also plenty of time for discussing the insights other disciplines might have to offer for Netspar research issues. Examples include the psychology of pension communications and retirement decisions, the importance of the social environment in retirement, the problems of long-term care, the connections between health and later retirement, and the legal aspects of retirement, such as entitlements. There were also a remarkable number of papers presenting results from other countries (incl. China, Sweden, and Australia) and the lessons they hold for the Dutch pension system.
