Pension Coverage and Retirement Security

IB#9-26

The brief’s key findings are:

  • Private pensions cover only about half the workforce at any given time.
  • The lack of coverage creates two types of problems:
    • about one third of households never have coverage and end up relying solely on Social Security; and
    • many others move in and out of coverage, resulting in inadequate saving.
  • Expanding coverage is a good goal but only a partial solution, as even those with coverage may need an additional tier of saving.

The CRR wants to hear from our website users like you. Would be you willing to take a short survey?

Yes, take me to it.       No, thanks.      Not now, but ask me later.
