Redistribution, Insurance and Incentives to Work in Latin American Pension Programs

Alvaro Forteza () and Guzmán Ourens ()

No 1810, Documentos de Trabajo (working papers) from Department of Economics - dECON

Abstract: We present a new database of social security indicators for eleven Latin American countries designed to show how much they promise to pay in return to contributions. The indicators are based on micro-simulations according to existing norms. Our results indicate that most programs are progressive. In most programs, retirement ages do not have a sizeable impact on the rates of return, given the length of service. The length of service has a strong impact on the expected returns to contributions, mostly due to vesting period conditions. Because of this, several pension programs in Latin America may be exacerbating income risk.
