Should Germany Pursue a Transition to a Multi-pillar Pension System? A Simulation Study

  • N. Weerts N. Weerts

In general, the structure of pension systems is set up differently in every country. The aspects in which these systems vary across nations include – amongst others – the degree of voluntary participation, the extent of workers’ contribution, the amount of pensioner’s benefits as well as the retirement age. The way of financing a pension system is regarded as another crucial element for defining such schemes. Thus, this research will examine the best financing method for pension systems.
