Employee solidarity is central to the second pillar of the Dutch pension system. This solidarity is given shape in collective schemes implemented by industrywide, company and professional group pension funds. The present book sets out to explain how solidarity works within collective pension schemes and to answer the questions: what groups participate in the solidarity mechanism and what are the financial stakes for each group? After reading this book the reader will be in a better position to form his own opinion as to whether the current collective pension system is desirable or not.
