The best indexation of public pensions: the point system

No 1815, IEHAS Discussion Papers from Institute of Economics, Centre for Economic and Regional Studies, Hungarian Academy of Sciences

Abstract: We reconsider the problem of indexation of public pensions, emphasizing that similar contribution paths should imply similar benefit paths. This robustness criterion is only satisfied by full wage indexing, which in turn requires the politically unpopular reduction of the accrual rates. To minimize the redistribution from low-earning short-lived citizens to high-earning long-lived ones, progressive benefits should be introduced.
