The 2020 edition of the OECD Pensions Outlook examines a series of policy options
to help governments improve the sustainability and resilience of pension systems.
It considers how to ensure that policy makers balance the trade-off between the short-term
and long-term consequences of policy responses to COVID-19; how to determine and assess
the adequacy of retirement income; how funded pension arrangements can support individuals
in non-standard forms of work to save for retirement; how to select default investment
strategies; how to address the potential negative consequences from frequent switching
of investment strategies; and, how retirement income arrangements can share both the
investment and longevity risks among different stakeholders in a sustainable manner.
This edition also discusses how governments can communicate in a way that helps people
choose their optimal investment strategies.
