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.
