Rich Man, Poor Man: The Policy Implications of Canadians Living Longer
CD Howe Institute E-Brief
CD Howe Institute
23 Aug 2018 Canada Countries - excl. European Union and US, Longevity
The CD Howe Institute has published a paper examining the relationship between earnings and longevity in Canada using an administrative dataset of Canada Pension Plan recipients. The study measures how longevity differs across earnings levels and uses these calculations for individuals in different birth cohorts to observe if the earnings-longevity gradient is steepening or if longevity is improving equally for everyone. According to the paper, the findings have direct policy implications for pensions and these are explored by showing how longevity affects the value of an annuity.

The World Economic Forum has published a handbook entitled "Case Studies in Retirement System Reform" which presents 12 case studies on the approaches that governments, pension funds and companies have taken to address the challenges that their own retirement systems face. The report outlines initiatives that have been taken and lessons learned to guide those seeking future pension reforms.

To accompany the handbook, the World Economic Forum has also published a White Paper entitled "We’ll Live to 100 - How Can We Afford It?" which addresses the challenges facing retirement systems, including the impact of ageing societies, and quantifies the size of the savings shortfall. It also provides recommendations for system design and actions for policy-makers to make sure we can adjust to societies in which living to 100 is commonplace and affordable for all.
