Abstract: Australia’s retirement income provision system, comprising the “three pillars” of a means-tested Age Pension, mandatory occupational Superannuation and other, voluntary long term savings, is at the heart of understanding the fiscal implications of ageing. While the Intergenerational Report, an account of long term fiscal sustainability, is celebrating its tenth birthday since the first edition was published, the Superannuation Guarantee (SG), first implemented in 1992, is about to turn a sprightly twenty. This paper considers the intergenerational reports as a prism for studying fiscal, demographic, and policy developments in the Australian retirement income system over the last decade and into the future.
