We examine the heterogeneous and dynamic impact of China's New Rural Pension Scheme on intergenerational wealth dependence using a nationally representative longitudinal household survey covering the period 2011-13. We adopt an instrumental quantile regression-discontinuity design to address the endogeneity of partial compliance of the pension scheme and the observed individual heterogeneity.
