The fable of the equal pension contribution rate for all age groups

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleProfessional

Abstract

In the current pension contract in the Netherlands with equal contribution rates for all age groups, transfer of capital takes place within generations, namely from early retirers to stayers, and from those with a flat income profile to those with a steep income profile. With this contract with capital funded pensions, there are in principle no transfers from young to old. This article argues that it is a fable that for that reason young people benefit from the abolition of the present contribution system.
