Does the implicit pension debt mean anything after all?
Working Paper 118/11
Centre for Research on Pensions & Welfare Policies (CERP)
Apr 2011 WORLDWIDE Worldwide News, Surpluses and Deficits, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
Working paper 118/11 assesses the concept of implicit pension debt (unfunded pension liabilities) from a public finance perspective and contrasts this with the notion of public debt. The results of the study show that countries have implicit pension debt of various sizes which have displayed different trends in recent years. The research concludes that implicit pension debt is very different from public debt but still meaningful for economic policy.

Planning and Financial Literacy: How Do Women Fare?
Planning and Financial Literacy: How Do Women Fare?
Centre for Research on Pensions & Welfare Policies (CERP)
11 Jan 2008 United States Savings, Pensioners & Retirement, Countries - US
Many older US households have done little or no planning for retirement, and there is a substantial population that seems to undersave for retirement. Of particular concern is the relative position of older women, who are more vulnerable to old-age poverty due to their longer longevity. This paper uses data from a special module we devised on planning and financial literacy in the 2004 Health and Retirement Study. It shows that women display much lower levels of financial literacy than the older population as a whole. In addition, women who are less financially literate are also less likely to plan for retirement and be successful planners. These findings have important implications for policy and for programs aimed at fostering financial security at older ages.

An empirical assessment of the Italian severance payment (TFR)
An empirical assessment of the Italian severance payment
Centre for Research on Pensions & Welfare Policies (CERP)
Dec 2004 Italy Miscellaneous
The Italian TFR is a statutory payment made by firms to staff on separation. Recent reforms of the national pension system are based on voluntary transfers of the TFR to a supplementary pension fund. The purpose of this paper is to provide a probabilistic distribution of how workers make use of their severance payment, on the basis of their demographic and occupational characteristics. The research finds that the TFR mainly acts both as a buffer stock and as an income source upon retirmenet.
