Pension reform and couples’ joint retirement decisions
The success of policies raising the retirement age depends on people’s responsiveness to changes in pension eligibilityLaura Hospido, April 2015Rising life expectancy and the growing fiscal insolvency of public pension systems have prompted many developed countries to raise the pension entitlement age. The success of such policies depends on the responsiveness of individuals to such changes. Retirement has increasingly become a decision made jointly by a couple rather than individually by one partner.

This joint determination of retirement has important implications for policies intended to reduce the burden of pension costs.MoreLess
