COMMUNICATING PENSION RISK TO DC PLAN MEMBERS: THE CHILEAN CASE OF A PENSION RISK SIMULATOR

Pablo Antolin () and Olga Fuentes ()

No 55, Working Papers from Superintendencia de Pensiones

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to discuss a few issues related to how best to communicate uncertainty about projections of future pension benefits to members of DC plans, and especially to present a pension risk simulator developed by the Chilean regulator (Superintendencia de Pensiones, SP) that addresses directly how to convey that uncertainty and aims at eliciting a pro-active response from individuals in terms of contributing more and for longer..
