Increasing the role of retirement savings plans for workers in non-standard forms of work
07/12/2020 – This chapter in the 2020 edition of the OECD Pensions Outlook discusses policy options to increase the role of retirement savings plans for workers in non-standard forms of work, based on the experience of OECD and non-OECD countries. It first describes the characteristics of workers in non-standard forms of work and the implications for their ability and capacity to save for retirement. It then identifies gaps in their retirement income protection given the current balance between public and private provisions. The chapter ends with policy options, distinguishing different categories of workers in non-standard forms of work, to encourage them to join and regularly contribute to retirement savings plans.

About the OECD-EU project
Launched in 2018, the OECD-EU Project on the role of funded pensions in providing retirement income to people in non-standard forms of work analyses whether workers in non-standard forms of work, either self-employed or employed under non-standard contracts, require different forms of funded pension provision and different incentives to participate in the pension system. It examines funded pension coverage and contributions for different segments of the “non-standard” labour force within the OECD and the EU and considers whether policies introduced in a number of jurisdictions to increase coverage and contributions of certain categories of workers in non-standard forms of work could be applied across other segments and countries.
