Pension Insecurity in Ireland
Pension Insecurity in Ireland
The Statistical & Social Inquiry Society of Ireland (SSISI)
20 Jan 2009 Ireland Scheme Issues & Trends, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC)
The annual amount of the state subsidy to occupational and private pensions in Ireland is double that previously believed and is of the same order as the total annual
payments under the state flat-rate contributory and non-contributory pension schemes. In this report, the Statistical & Social Inquiry Society of Ireland (SSISI) asks: does the state get value-for-money from these subsidies? To answer the question SSISI introduces the fair value approach to value pension entitlements. It suggests and analyses measures to improve members’ security and recommend that the fair value of pension entitlements be made a debt on the sponsoring employer and that there should be regular disclosure to members of the level of security backing their pension entitlement. SSISI concludes by suggesting that the state has a larger role to play in pension provision in Ireland in the 21st century than it played in the last century.
