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.

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.

Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index
Mercer
Oct 2009 United States, Singapore, Sweden, Netherlands, Japan, United Kingdom, Germany, China, Chile, Canada, Australia Worldwide News, State Pensions, Scheme Issues & Trends, Longevity
The Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index presents an approach to objectively compare the retirement income systems in eleven countries spread across the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific. The results show that no country’s system has an index value above 80, which represents an A-grade retirement income system. However, four countries have an index value between 65 and 80, which represents a B-grade system and - with some adjustments or improvements - these countries could be re-classified as A-grade systems.

Ageing Asia must face its pension problems
Pensions in Asia/Pacific
OECD
7 Jan 2008 Viet Nam, Pakistan, Philippines, Japan, India, Indonesia, China, Australia Scheme Issues & Trends, Savings, Investment - General, Countries - excl. European Union and US
An OECD/World Bank report which analyses the retirement income systems of 18 Asian countries, says that to prepare for the rapid population ageing forecast over the next two decades, it is vital to act now to avoid future problems and repeating many of the mistakes made in Europe and North America. The report says that reform is needed because coverage of formal pension systems is relatively low, withdrawal of savings before retirement is very common, pension savings are often taken as lump sums and often do not provide people with adequate income over their lifetime and pensions payments are not automatically adjusted to reflect changes in the cost of living.
