Intra-household allocation of non-mandatory retirement savings

Christoph Metzger

The Journal of the Economics of Ageing, 2018, vol. 12, issue C, 77-87

Abstract: Traditionally, households have been regarded as single units when it comes to savings. Although this might be correct for some kinds of household savings, we question the accuracy of this unitary model with respect to non-mandatory retirement savings. To do so, we analyze the intra-household allocation of retirement savings between partners in Germany through an individualistic approach.
