Pensions at a Glance 2021
OECD and G20 Indicators
The 2021 edition of Pensions at a Glance highlights the pension reforms undertaken
by OECD countries over the past two years. Moreover, the special chapter focuses on
automatic adjustment mechanisms in pensions systems in OECD countries, discusses the
usefulness and limitations of these policy instruments, and suggests ways to improve
them in order to enhance the capacity of pension systems to fulfil their objectives.
This edition also updates information on the key features of pension provision in
OECD and G20 countries and provides projections of retirement income for today’s workers.
It offers indicators covering the design of pension systems, pension entitlements,
the demographic and economic context in which pension systems operate, incomes and
poverty of older people, the finances of retirement‑income systems and private pensions.
