Review Netspar Taskforce day, February 13

On Thursday, February 13, Netspar researchers and partners came together to present the latest information on their research projects and gather feedback. The program included an international comparison of social security and retirement, protection against the risks of elder care and insights from eye-scanner research in pension communication.

The labor market was a central focus of the plenary discussions: Adriaan Kalwij (UU) gave an overview of the effect of policy reforms on workforce participation among older people, based on the findings of an international research project. See also the interview with Courtney Coile who is one of the directors of the NBER International Social Security Project.

The Labor Market and Retirement project group presented its initial findings. And the poster sessions were back by popular demand: these consist of a paper summarized in no more than eight images on a poster, along with a short pitch by the researcher and plenty of time for discussion. Among other topics, the poster sessions were about the differences in pension preferences of employed and self-employed persons and whether these can be explained by working conditions (by Marleen Damman, NIDI). And about the interaction between determinants of payment speed: the high-low construction, lump sum payment, fixed decrease and starting date (Eduard Ponds, APG and TiU).


Through the available presentations, you can have a sneak preview of new research that will be published in the course of this year:
