Socioeconomic inequalities and disability pension in middle-aged men. (1/142)

BACKGROUND: The issue of inequalities in health has generated much discussion and socioeconomic status is considered an important variable in studies of health. It is frequently used in epidemiological studies, either as a possible risk factor or a confounder and the aim of this study was to analyse the relation between socioeconomic status and risk of disability pension. METHODS: Five complete birth year cohorts of middle-aged male residents in Malmo were invited to a health survey and 5782 with complete data constituted the cohort in this prospective study. Each subject was followed for approximately 11 years and nationwide Swedish data registers were used for surveillance. RESULTS: Among the 715 men (12%), granted disability pension during follow-up, three groups were distinguished. The cumulative incidence of disability pension among blue collar workers was 17% and among lower and higher level white collar workers, 11% and 6% respectively. With simultaneous adjustment for biological risk factors and job conditions, the relative risk for being granted a disability pension (using higher level white collar workers as reference) was 2.5 among blue collar workers and 1.6 among lower level white collar workers. CONCLUSIONS: Socioeconomic status, as defined by occupation, is a risk factor for being granted disability pension even after adjusting for work conditions and other risk factors for disease.  (+info)

Permanent work incapacity, mortality and survival without work incapacity among occupations and social classes: a cohort study of ageing men in Geneva. (2/142)

BACKGROUND: The objective of this retrospective cohort study was to investigate the burden of disability and death in men, from middle age to age of retirement, among occupational groups and classes in Geneva. METHODS: Men were included if they resided in the Canton of Geneva, were 45 years of age in 1970-1972, and were not receiving a disability pension at the start of the follow-up. The cohort of 5137 men was followed up for 20 years and linked to national registers of disability pension allowance and of causes of death. RESULTS: There was a steep upward trend in incidence of permanent work incapacity with lower social class for all causes as well as for the seven causes of disability studied. Compared with professional occupations (social class I), the relative risk (RR) of permanent work incapacity was 11.4 for partly skilled and unskilled occupations (class IV+V) (95% confidence interval [CI]: 5.2-28.0). The social class gradient in mortality was in the same direction as that in work incapacity although much less steep (RR class IV+V to class I = 1.6, 95% CI : 1.1-2.2). Survival without work incapacity at the time of the 65th birthday ranged from only 57% in construction workers and labourers to 89% in science and related professionals. Unemployment in Geneva was below 1.5% during almost all the study period. CONCLUSIONS: Medically-ascertained permanent work incapacity and survival without work incapacity have shown considerably greater socioeconomic differentials than the mortality differentials.  (+info)

Longitudinal, population-based study of self reported alcohol habits, high levels of sickness absence, and disability pensions. (3/142)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To analyse the relation between self reported hazardous drinking on the one hand and high sickness absence and/or disability pensions in both sexes on the other hand. DESIGN: The study is based on data from a health survey, Stockholm Health of the Population Study, conducted in 1984. The mailed questionnaire covered alcohol consumption. Three different measures of alcohol habits were used: usual alcohol consumption, consumption during the previous week, and answers to the four CAGE questions on problem drinking. Information from the health survey and data from a subsequent health examination were related to information from the National Swedish Social Insurance Board for the year 1984 and the years 1986 to 1991 concerning sick leave and disability pensioning. SETTING: Four primary health care districts in Stockholm County. PARTICIPANTS: The study group included persons who were aged 20 to 52 years in 1984, who answered the questionnaire (by mail or by telephone), and who participated in the health examination. The study group comprised 985 women and 870 men fulfilling the criteria for inclusion out of 6217 subjects aged 18 years and over randomly drawn. MAIN RESULTS: In both sexes, a consistent pattern of increased sickness absence was seen for high consumers and for those with indications of problem drinking. In most comparisons, a clearly increased relative risk, although not always statistically significant, for an average of at least 60 sick days per year or for a disability pension during follow up was found. In multivariate analysis, controlling for age, socioeconomic group, smoking habits, and self reported health, a small reduction in the relative risks was found, suggesting that these factors could explain only a small part of the relative risks. The risks for abstainers were higher than for low and moderate consumers. CONCLUSIONS: The effects of alcohol on subsequent high levels of sickness absence five to seven years after baseline as well as on the occurrence of disability pensions suggested that there is an effect on working incapacity independent of baseline health status, smoking, and socioeconomic group.  (+info)

Why do Swedish-speaking Finns have longer active life? An area for social capital research. (4/142)

We performed ecological and individual register studies to compare disability-free life expectancies and disability pensions among Swedish-speaking and Finnish-speaking Finns residing on the western coast of Finland. The study was conducted to establish our assumption that the Swedish-speaking ethnic minority has a longer active life than the Finnish-speaking majority and to show that this disparity can be seen in a limited geographical area with similar socio-economic and health service structures. We suggest that the observed disparities in active life and in mortality depend on differences in the extent of social capital. A detailed characterization of the social capital and its impact on the health of the Swedish-speaking individuals is in progress.  (+info)

Job-based health insurance in 2001: inflation hits double digits, managed care retreats. (5/142)

Drawing on the results of a national survey of 1,907 firms with three or more workers, this paper reports on several facets of job-based health insurance, including the cost to employers and workers; plan offerings and enrollments; patient cost sharing and benefits; eligibility, coverage, and take-up rates; and results from questions about employers' knowledge of market trends and health policy initiatives. Premiums increased 11 percent from spring 2000 to spring 2001, and the percentage of Americans in health maintenance organizations (HMOs) fell six percentage points to its lowest level since 1993, while preferred provider organization (PPO) enrollment rose to 48 percent. Despite premium increases, the percentage of firms offering coverage remained statistically unchanged, and a relatively strong labor market has continued to shield workers from the higher cost of coverage.  (+info)

A flexible benefits tax credit for health insurance and more. (6/142)

This essay outlines a concept for a "flexible benefits" tax credit for expanding health insurance coverage and other purposes such as retirement savings plans (with potential withdrawals for higher education, first-home ownership, and catastrophic medical expenses). Two examples are presented. The advantages of a flexible benefits tax credit are considered in terms of efficient use of the budget surplus to help meet the varied (and changing) needs of American families, to eliminate major national gaps in health insurance and pension coverage, and to advance other objectives. If the budget surplus is used wisely, political decisionmakers could achieve health insurance coverage for most uninsured workers and children and assure a future with real economic security for American families.  (+info)

War pensions (1900-1945): changing models of psychological understanding. (7/142)

BACKGROUND: War pensions are used to examine different models of psychological understanding. The First World War is said to have been the first conflict for which pensions were widely granted for psychological disorders as distinct from functional, somatic syndromes. In 1939 official attitudes hardened and it is commonly stated that few pensions were awarded for post-combat syndromes. AIMS: To re-evaluate the recognition of psychiatric disorders by the war pension authorities. METHOD: Official statistics were compared with samples of war pension files from the Boer War and the First and Second World Wars. RESULTS: Official reports tended to overestimate the number of awards. Although government figures suggested that the proportion of neurological and psychiatric pensions was higher after the Second World War, our analysis suggests that the rates may not have been significantly different. CONCLUSIONS: The acceptance of psychological disorders was a response to cultural shifts, advances in psychiatric knowledge and the exigencies of war. Changing explanations were both a consequence of these forces and themselves agents of change.  (+info)

The role of gender in long-term sickness absence and transition to permanent disability benefits. Results from a multiregister based, prospective study in Norway 1990-1995. (8/142)

BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to identify predictors for the transition from long-term sickness absence into disability pension with a special focus on gender. METHODS: The study used data from a national database containing a 10% random sample of the Norwegian adult population (The KIRUT database). The study population were all individuals in the database who on 1 January 1990 were eligible for sick pay from the Norwegian National Insurance System: 83,398 men and 75,586 women. Individuals below 60 years with long-term sickness absence starting in 1990 and 1991 were identified, 6,434 men and 8,233 women, and followed up for three years. Background data were used as independent variables in a logistic regression of the probability for receiving disability pension during follow-up. RESULTS: Annual cumulative incidence of long-term sickness absence was 6.5% for women and 4.9% for men. During follow-up, 12.4% of the women and 12.6% of the men received disability pension. Among full-time employed women only 10.3% had become disability pensioners, while the corresponding proportion for women working part-time was 15.5%. For men the figures were 12.1% (full-time) and 18.1% (part-time). In the logistic regression of the whole sample the female odds ratio was insignificant. The dominant predictive factors for disability pension were age and duration of the sickness spells. Working part-time also increased the risk. Higher levels of education and having children below 7 years reduced the probability for disability pension. Separate regressions for men and women showed that the 'protective' effect of having small children only remained for women.  (+info)

In accordance with the traditional international classification, pension provision is divided into three pillars.. First pillar pensions are statutory pensions. In Finland, such pensions are the national and the earnings-related pensions.. Second-pillar pensions are collective industry- or employer-specific pension schemes. In Finland, such schemes include group pension insurance arranged by the employer.. Third-pillar pensions are private, voluntary pensions. In Finland, they may be individual pensions or long-term saving accounts. People may prepare for their retirement also by saving in other ways.. The significance of supplementary pensions increases if the income in retirement would be low otherwise due to, for instance, long periods of study, unemployment or child care. In addition to raising the level of income in retirement, voluntary supplementary pension provision sometimes offers the possibility to retire before reaching the retirement age.. ...

This study estimates the magnitude of pension wealth and compares pension wealth to net worth for households in the 1983 Survey of Consumer Finance (SCF). The SCF is the first data set to provide detailed information on both household finances and pension characteristics. The pension information is provided by the employer, so that it is much more detailed and likely to be more accurate than the pension data used in previous studies. Pension wealth was estimated under two sets of assumptions. Under the projected earnings approach, mean pension wealth is $98,291, which represents 43 percent of mean net worth for households with pensions. Under the legal method of calculating pension wealth, mean pension wealth is $47,541, which represents 26 percent of mean net worth for households with pensions. Both estimates are much larger than those obtained in earlier studies. The study also examines how estimates of inequality in the wealth distribution change when pension wealth is added to household ...
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has launched a new website to help people locate their pension savings.. The new website from the Pension Tracing Service allows users to find information about workplace pension schemes they may have contributed to by entering former employers details into an online database..

In 2015-2016 the Pension Tracing Service received 169,000 tracing requests. The service has seen a 436% increase in tracing requests over the last 10 years.. Baroness Ros Altmann, minister for pensions, said: People have had on average 11 jobs during their working life which can mean they have as many workplace pensions to keep track of. The new DWP online Pension Tracing Service helps reunite people with their lost pensions, giving details of providers to help people track them down.. Tom McPhail, ...
Private pensions are pensions schemes that are not arranged by the government. There are two types of private pensions - workplace pensions and personal pensions. In this article, we cover what a personal pension is, types of personal pensions, tax relief on personal pension, how to choose a personal pension, best pension providers and more.
Pensions are currently subject to tax breaks from the government, but they are not entirely tax free.. Once a pension fund starts paying out (whether state or a private pension), it is counted as taxable income.. Prior to this, however, there are considerable tax benefits to pensions.. Firstly, money placed in pensions is exempt from income tax. This means that for every pound of take-home pay put in a pension fund, the government repays the income tax on it - offering a potential 40 per cent boost (for higher rate tax payers).. Pension fund growth is not taxed, although dividends from stocks held in pension funds are. Pensions are also exempt from capital gains tax.. However, pension contributions over tax limits - up to the value of their annual salary or £215,000, whichever is lower - or income on funds worth more than the Lifetime Allowance (currently £1.5 million) are subject to tax ...
Ben Rees, a pensions expert from Denehall Wealth Management Ltd, answers the question:-. Graham asks:-. I am looking to sell my pension funds at the moment (value circa £80k) and would like to know whether this is possible. Ben answers:-. The Financial Services Authority have recently teamed up with The Pensions Regulator and HMRC to crack down on schemes and providers who are offering early access to pension funds.. It is illegal to take money out of a pension fund before age 55. This is despite all the information you may find online telling you different through many dubious offers of cash backs, loans and all sorts of offshore schemes, with little attention paid to the pension rules and consequences to you.. You are not able to sell your pension to another person, and the schemes that offer access to your pension early are breaking the law and usually taking staggering commissions to facilitate the sale of the pension.. Thousands of people have fallen prey to these scams because they ...
But Anne Redston, a tax partner and pensions specialist at Ernst & Young, warned that many pension fund trustees would struggle to handle the complex tax affairs of pension schemes, particularly over property. There is often a fine line between investment and trading, she said, adding that self-assessment could form part of a wider crusade against tax exemptions for pension schemes. Pension funds are easy money for the government as no-one really understands what is happening. If the government starts to nibble away at tax exemptions, they become less tax efficient.. These fears were echoed by the chief accountant of a #14bn occupational pension fund. Its another layer of administrative reporting and might not encourage employers to sponsor occupational pension schemes, he said.. According to the National Association of Pension Funds, UK occupational pension funds hold #800bn of assets.. Alan Pickering, vice chairman of the NAPF, said: The Revenue is fishing in the dark because they ...
Self Directed Pension Funds (ISA) offer the tax efficiency of pension arrangements combined with control over the underlying investments. A Self Directed Pension Fund is any pension arrangement where the member has control of the underlying investments. Up to 5 April 2006, such arrangements were available either as a Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) or a Small Self Administered Scheme (SSAS). A SIPP was a personal pension with widened investment powers and a SSAS was an occupational pension scheme where the members were trustees and able to control all investment decisions. These distinctions are still used today but are technically incorrect as all arrangements are registered pension schemes, governed by the same rules. The arrangements are now either trust based arrangements or cont... ». ...
Background: The social gradient in disability pension is well recognized, however mechanisms accounting for the gradient are largely unknown. The aim of this study was to examine the association between occupational class and subsequent disability pension among middle-aged men and women, and to what extent work-related factors accounted for the association. Methods: A subsample (N = 7031) of the population-based Hordaland Health Study (HUSK) conducted in 1997-99, provided self-reported information on health and work-related factors, and were grouped in four strata by Erikson, Goldthorpe and Portocareros occupational class scheme. The authors obtained follow-up data on disability pension by linking the health survey to national registries of benefit (FD-trygd). They employed Cox regression analysis and adjusted for gender, health (medical conditions, mental health, self-perceived health, somatic symptoms) and work-related factors (working hours, years in current occupation, physical demands, job ...
Its easy not to think about your pension while you are working and earning a salary. But now that life expectancy is longer, you could live for decades without earning after retirement. A woman who is 80 is on average expected to live to 91 and a man who is 80 now is on average expected to live to 89.. Working out how much state pension (SP) you will receive is complicated by the fact that there is the basic pension and the additional pension (State Earnings Related Pension Scheme). Some people will have contracted out of SERPS when taking on a private pension scheme.. Visit this web page to find out how much state pension you will get and when you get it and how to increase it (if you are eligible). Another route is through your HMRC government gateway account if you one (for submitting online tax returns). If you do not have an account, it is very easy to set one up, but you need your NI number.. Not many people know that the government offer a free pensions advice service: The Pension ...

This review assesses the Mexican pension system according to the OECD best practices and guidelines, and draws on international experiences and examples to make recommendations on how to improve it. It provides an international perspective on Mexicos retirement income provision and a short and focused review of the Mexican pension system. The review covers all components of the pension system: public and private pension provision for public and private-sector workers. It provides recommendations, using OECDs best practices in pension design, on how to improve the Mexican pension system and thus ameliorate the retirement income that people may receive from the pension system.
COMPANY directors were under fire yesterday for taking generous pensions while cutting schemes to new employees. A TUC report into directors pensions showed that the highest annual pension - the £929,000 of Jean-Pierre Garnier at GlaxoSmithKline - was 152 times the level of the average workers occupational pension of £6,084. The report said that leading companies often gave their top directors pension packages which were more than 50 times the level of employees pensions. The report, the first full study of directors pensions, comes as Britain faces a pensions crisis because of falls in stock market values and a lack of provision by company pension schemes. Many final-salary schemes are being closed to new workers and there are widespread fears for the future of company…. ...
As the Pensions Act approaches, there are a number of issue for employers to consider beyond auto-enrolment and compulsory contributions, says Jenny Keefe. Much has been written about how the Pensions Act 2008 will affect employers. But beyond personal accounts and increased pension costs from auto-enrolment and compulsory contributions, little has been said about the avalanche of other factors HR departments need to consider.. David Hix, associate director at Jelf Employee Benefits, says: This is probably the biggest change to pensions since the 1950s. Over 10 million people in the UK could be auto-enrolled into pension schemes on the same day. Yet few employers seem to be giving this any attention.. Only one-third of top companies have considered Acts effects. According to Watson Wyatts 2009 FTSE 100 Defined Contribution Pension Scheme Survey, only one-third of FTSE 100 companies have considered the Pensions Acts effect on their pension schemes come 2012, so it is clear employers have ...

Setting out his vision for the future of DC pensions, Mr Hyde Harrison called for a new breed of pensions called Super Trusts.. These are pensions run on a far larger scale. They would allow, for example, a small employer to join an existing pension structure with 1,000s of other members, rather than setting up its own small-scale scheme.. They would also have stronger governance measures, and high quality trustees to keep an eye on investment performance and charges with the savers interests in mind.. He said the NAPF would help to develop the right regulatory framework for Super Trusts, and look at ways of incentivising consolidation in the pensions market place.. He also called on the Government to provide greater stability in pensions, and for it to introduce a simpler, more generous pension which sets a clear foundation for retirement.. Notes to editors:. Mark Hyde Harrison is available for interview.. The NAPF is the leading voice of workplace pensions in the UK. We speak for 1,200 ...
A new calculator has been published for people who are planning to use family leave. With the calculator, they can assess how family leave periods of different lengths would affect their future pension and compare their pension accrual during family leave with what they would earn as pension if they worked the same period. The calculator, provided by the Finnish Centre for Pensions, is part of a project promoting gender equality in pensions. A link to the calculator will appear on Kelas site on benefits for families.. Parents taking family leave will earn pension benefits for the period they receive maternity, paternity or parental allowance or child home care allowance. With the calculator, they can determine the best way to divide family leave periods between them depending on the effects on their pension. Both parents calculate their own future pension.. Parents earn pension benefits during their maternity, paternity or parental leave almost the same way as when they are working, but long ...
1. Governments and organisations pay pensions to employees for long service. It is not for service for four or at most eight years. Note that there are over-generous compensations for this short-term political office. Pension is usually for 35 years of service or the attainment of 60 years.. 2. Employers fund pensions. A pension is a fund into which a sum of money is added during an employees employment years and from which payments are drawn to support the persons retirement from work in the form of periodic payments. Common types of pensions are defined benefits and defined contribution plan.. 3. Since the Pension Reform of 2014 updated in 2018, Nigeria moved from a defined to a contributory pension scheme. It means that workers and their employers contribute a minimum of 18 per cent of the workers remuneration to a pool of funds.. 4.

To continue reading please register or login to your OHW+ account.. A move by the Institute of Actuaries to adopt new rules for writing pension evaluation reports could force employers to pump more cash into pension plans.. Following criticism of current practice which allows actuaries to include future investment returns as though they had already been earned, the institute said it would review the reporting of pension valuations.. Actuaries are keen to show exactly how solvent a pension scheme is. Solvency would be defined as the ability of the employer to pay all promised pensions at any given time. Actuaries say that such a regime would reveal that most UK occupational pension schemes are likely to be shown to be currently insolvent. Mike Pomery, chairman of the Institute of Actuaries, told the Financial Times: This will put companies under pressure to put a lot more money into their schemes. It is fundamentally changing the framework in which final salary pensions were set up. He added ...

The phrase pension de-risking was not part of the pension plan lexicon until Ford Motor Co. dropped a pension benefit bombshell when it announced that it would offer about 90,000 salaried retirees and former employees the option to take their current or future monthly annuity as a lump-sum cash payment. Offering pension plan participants a lump-sum option is not uncommon, but such offers typically are made to employees at the time they terminate employment, not when they have already retired and are receiving their monthly annuities. The move allowed Ford to reduce its exposure to unpredictable pension plan costs and allowed it to concentrate on its core auto business. Fords move was soon followed by other large companies and the trend is expected to continue. This white paper explains how pension de-risking works, outlines the advantages of the strategy and reviews the outlook for the pension de-risking approach. View a sample.. ...

In the supposed name of equality, the pension age is due to rise for everyone to 68. The effect is much worse for women, whose pension age becomes eight years older, than for men, who have to wait only three more years.. The women affected now are women who grew up and planned their lives on an apparently-fixed pension age of 60, and now find it disappearing. Even worse, they complain that the Government has made little effort to tell them about the change, and some find out only when on the edge of retirement.. The last women to get a state pension at 60 were those born in April 1950. The womens pension age then increased fairly slowly until 2016, when women born in February 1953 were getting their pensions at age 63.. Then, a sudden increase, legislated in 2011: those born in November 1953 are getting their pensions only at age 65 ...
Its a basic principle of investing: the greater the risk an investor takes, the greater the potential reward. But as any experienced investor can attest, increased risk can also bring bigger disappointment. Thats the case with state pension funds. To elevate returns, public-sector pensions have taken on more and more risk for nearly two decades. The result, however, has been lower returns, higher debt, and a mess for taxpayers, according to a new study by Fitch Ratings.. Since 2001, the study found, most government pension funds have boosted their share of investments in riskier financial vehicles, from volatile stocks to real estate. During this period, pension funds achieved median annualized returns of just 6.4 percent, well below the goal of 7.5 percent to 8 percent returns. Only one pension system has met its investing goals since 2001. No wonder, then, that the indebtedness of state systems increased from $33 billion to a staggering $1.5 trillion.. The problem stems from politicians ...
Employers are able to comply with their obligations by using an existing qualifying pension scheme, setting up a new scheme or using the government low cost scheme - the National Employment Savings Trust (NEST).. It is important that the pension scheme chosen will deliver good outcomes for the employees retirement savings. This may mean that an employers existing scheme may not be appropriate as it may have been designed for the needs of higher paid and more senior employees. This may mean that NEST for example may be an appropriate scheme for employees who are not currently entitled to be a member of an existing employer scheme.. To be a qualifying automatic enrolment scheme, a scheme must meet the qualifying criteria and the automatic enrolment criteria.. The main part of the qualifying criteria requires the pension scheme to meet certain minimum standards, which differ according to the type of pension scheme. Most employers will want to offer a defined contribution pension scheme. The ...

Collective pension funds (CPFs) - occupational pension funds that cover the employees of more than one employer (enterprise) - have been operating in OECD countries for decades. Generally speaking, there are two models, i.e. closed pension funds, with membership restricted to a particular industry or group of industries, and open pension funds, open to all types of companies. The governance structure of such funds also operates in two ways - via an internal model (with trustees appointed by employers and employees) and an external model (with professional, commercial trustees). In this report, we first describe and analyse how CPFs are operated in selected OECD countries and non-OECD economies. Then, we review occupational pensions (or Enterprise Annuities - EA - in Chinese terminology) in general and CPFs in particular. Given the problems holding back the development of EA plans among small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in China, and bearing in mind both Chinas specific situations and ...

Of the 1,000 participants, 64% of the self-employed in the UK are avoiding putting money aside into a personal pension scheme. Considering the fact that there are an estimated 4.5 million self-employed workers in the UK, this amounts to around 2.9 million of them deciding against pension schemes.. The accountancy firms report continued: In stark contract to the self-employed figures, government data published earlier this month revealed that 81% of private sector workers - some ten million - are now paying into workplace pension schemes, thanks to the introduction of auto-enrollment in 2012.. These findings show a clear and growing disparity between the pension contributions from private workers and the self-employed, Derek Kelly, CEO of Optionis (owns Nixon Williams), added.. He said: Speaking to the contractors and freelancers we work with day-to-day, we find that one of the biggest barriers to enrolling in a private pension scheme is the fact that they render their earnings completely ...
Ukrainians, who live and work in the temporarily occupied territories, for retirement needs to pay contributions to the Pension Fund of Ukraine (PFCs). This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groisman.. We are talking about the insurance experience of people who have worked and are working in Ukraine and pay contributions to the Pension Fund of Ukraine. So people, no matter where he worked, if he will pay contributions to the pension Fund, there is no question in order to then qualify for a pension, said Groysman, answering how pension reform will affect people who live and work in the occupied territories according to the Russian documents.. He also noted that Crimea is Ukraine, and the contributions payable to the pension Fund of Ukraine.. Thus on specifying question that the Ukrainians in Crimea are forced to work in another country, the Premier said: I think I gave the answer to the question.. We will remind that on may 17 the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the ...
Switzerlands pension fund industry has been advised to get its house in order with stricter self-regulation following the recent Swissfirst bank scandal. The banking sector has questioned a perceived lack of control over the way pension fund managers conduct their business while experts fear a damaging amount of government red tape. The dispute has erupted after the suspicious movement of shares just before the merger of Swissfirst and Bellevue banks in September of last year. Several pension funds sold Swissfirst shares to the banks chief executive, Thomas Matter, leading up to the deal, sparking a criminal investigation when the news broke a few weeks ago. A pension fund manager at Siemens Switzerland was then arrested and later released in Zurich. Several banking organisations have been quick to highlight the difference between their heavily regulated sector and the comparatively laissez faire approach of the pensions industry. The pensions field is regulated with a code of conduct, but when you
The Pensions Office administers the pension schemes operated by the College for its workers. Whenever you begin taking pension revenue, you will need to determine if you happen to should have taxes withheld from your pension payment If after-tax money was contributed to the pension, a portion could also be tax-free. Pension preparations supplied by the state in most nations on the earth are unfunded, with benefits paid directly from current employees contributions and taxes.. Within the United States, the authorized definition of an outlined contribution plan is a plan offering for a person account for each participant, and for benefits based mostly solely on the amount contributed to the account, plus or minus revenue, good points, bills and losses allotted to the account (see 26 U.S.C. § 414(i) ). Examples of outlined contribution plans in the United States embody particular person retirement accounts (IRAs) and 401(k) plans In such … Read the rest Read More ...
Monday, April 10, 2006. The government may be struggling to convince the Left about the New Pension Scheme (NPS) and the need to channel a slice of the pension and provident fund kitty into equity. Shaji Vikraman. But there?s hope round in an unlikely source. Early next week, 50,000 women, many of them struggling to eke out a living, will sign up for the country?s first micro pension scheme. These ladies, members of Ahmedabad?s Self-Employed Women?s Association(SEWA), will join a SEBI-approved pension plan that offers no assured returns but can invest up to 40% of its collections in stocks. This could be a mirror-image of the government-planned new pension scheme, under which, subscribers build a nest egg with their contributions. No benefits are assured on retirement. The NPS and the micro-pension plan is based on the concept of defined contributions by workers. The final pay-outs hinge on the returns earned by the schemes they subscribe to..

The current economic and financial crisis has shaken confidence in funded pension systems in general and in defined contribution (DC) pension plans in particular. The crisis has highlighted the impact of market conditions on retirement savings accumulated in DC pension plans and the uncertainty as to whether those retirement savings may prove adequate to finance retirement - particularly for those close to retirement. The purpose of this paper is to provide recommendations on how to ensure adequate retirement income from DC pension plans. In this context, this paper addresses three main questions: 1) How much do people need to save? 2) How can the effects of market risk on DC pension plans be alleviated? 3) How can retirement income be protected during the payout phase? The analysis concludes that in order to deliver adequate retirement income from DC pension plans with a certain degree of certainty, there is a need for comprehensive measures which include: higher contributions; increasing the ...
Results 15 345 working-age residents (49.6% women) with knee OA were identified. Compared with the general population, the RR (95% CI) of having had one or more episodes of sick leave during the year was 1.82 (1.73 to 1.91) for women and 2.03 (1.92 to 2.14) for men with knee OA. The corresponding risk for disability pension was 1.54 (1.48 to 1.60) for women and 1.36 (1.28 to 1.43) for men with knee OA. The annual mean number of sick days was 87 for each patient with knee OA and 57 for the general population (age- and sex-standardised). Of all sick leave and disability pension in the entire population, 2.1% of days were attributable to knee OA or associated comorbidity in the patients with knee OA (3.1% for sick leave and 1.8% for disability pension).. ...
Results: The proportion of the employed steeply decreased and that of unemployed increased before the rejection of a disability pension application. Four years after the rejection, 30% of the rejected applicants were employed, 24% were unemployed and 30% received disability pension. Employment at the time of the rejection, younger age, shorter unemployment history, public sector employment and milder work disability increased future employment. Manual work, public sector employment and previous long-term unemployment predicted future unemployment. Apart from higher age, associations with receiving disability pension were relatively weak ...
Employees spike pensions by using overtime, vacation time and similar benefits to drive up their income before retirement. CalPERS, the largest pension fund in the country, ran afoul of the governors wishes by permitting such temporary pay increases to count as pensionable income, the amount used to calculate the size of retirement pensions.. The move flew in the face of Assembly Bill 340, signed into law by Brown as the Public Employees Pension Reform Act. Its aim was to make a dent in the public pensions crisis that has threatened to overwhelm city and state budgets. Through a series of complex regulatory adjustments, PEPRA made newer public employees much more responsible for paying the cost of their retirement benefits. While Brown and his allies cheered the over $50 billion in expected savings over 30 years, unions such as the Service Employees International Union decried the changes.. One of Browns key objectives was to use PEPRA to crack down on pension spiking. As The Wall Street ...
In the process of the development, establishment and improvement of industrialization, the pension system has played an important role in maintaining social stability and promoting economic development, and it became the safety valve of social and economic operation. Chinese introduced the pension system under direction of socialist ideology, the reform of the system is mainly carried out by governments executive order, and distribute to other places. However, with the establishment of Chinas market economy system, the pension system has also undergone a structural change, such as the imple-mentation of multi-level pension system, government policy and private account system, and the rural pension insurance system. South Korea made
Millions of retirees live on pensions that have never been adjusted for increases in the cost of living. Over time, inflation can eat away at retirees pension benefits, diminishing their purchasing power. On a fixed income, a retirees ability to pay bills becomes more difficult as time passes.. The Pension Rights Center has worked with a number of grassroots activists who have fought to have cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) added to their pensions. Among the most successful are Kevin Mahar and the late Helen Quirini, of the GE Justice Fund. Read about Helen and Kevins efforts in our Profile of Helen.. Helen and Kevin learned early on that effective COLA Campaigns start with documenting the amount of surplus assets in a pension plan, and showing the way the dollar value of pensions can be reduced by inflation during retirement.. Read our fact sheet to figure out how much the purchasing power of your benefit has been reduced since you retired and to learn how to determine if your pension ...
In general, the retirement age under the Public Sector Pensions Act is the same as that under the Employees Pensions Act, and the retirement age rises in the same way in the public sector as in the private sector. However, some public sector employees, as well as sailors insured under the Seafarers Pensions Act, may have the right to an old-age pension at an earlier age.. Some state and local government employees may be entitled to an old-age pension at an occupational retirement age during a transition period. For example, policemen and Customs employees may have reduced retirement ages if their employment has begun before 1 July 1989 and continues uninterruptedly until their retirement age. The occupational retirement ages will also rise gradually for those persons who, before the 2017 rules came into force, would have reached their retirement age in 2018 or later.. For persons employed by the State, regulations stipulate that employees of the Finnish Defence Forces and the Finnish Boarder ...
Many people do important work and do a good job but dont receive the kind of pensions that public employees do. I dont think that youre listening; were not acrimonious toward teachers. We dont argue that teachers didnt do a good job. But the size of public employee pensions are bankrupting the city and state. The money just isnt there. And all the public employees unions do is whine about how tough they have it instead of making a positive contribution to how to solve the problem.. The argument that the pension underfund was caused by politicians taking the money for other purposes doesnt tell the entire story. (By the way, one of those other purposes was to support the annual state contributions to schools.) The fact that the pensions are so overly generous and couldnt be afford in the first place also contributes to the problem. Besides, where were those public employee union leaders when the people they donated campaign money to were raiding the pension funds? The people that your ...
1309 views. TAIPEI/HONG KONG. Taiwans military pension fund may be in default by 2020 after years of widening deficits, raising alarm about the islands defense stability when tensions are heating up with political foe China.. The government says an urgent overhaul of the pension system is needed as large payouts are no longer sustainable for the export-reliant economy, with contributions crimped by slower economic growth since the 1990s and a rapidly aging population.. Some 120,000 on military pension benefits and another 200,000 in the civil service are nervous about pension reform, a priority of President Tsai Ing-wen. A restructured scheme could result in having to wait longer to retire as well as smaller pension payments, among other changes.. The biggest problem we are facing with the reform is fear. It is making everyone anxious and uneasy, said Hu Chu-sheng, a retired former Lieutenant General who had served in the army for 40 years.. When soldiers cannot focus on their duty, it ...
The current pandemic highlights how a global crisis can fundamentally impact our lives and our financial security. Its important during this time not to lose sight of the impact of climate change on our social and economic security. Pension trustees have a fiduciary obligation to pension plan members and beneficiaries to act in their best interests in making investment decisions. In fulfilling their obligations, pension trustees and their investment managers must identify and address climate-related financial risk. Join us as we discuss the state of the law on fiduciary obligation and pension funds and offer practical steps that pension trustees can take to ensure effective climate governance.. ...
Syllabus. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), enacted in 1974, created a pension plan termination insurance program whereby the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC), a wholly owned Government corporation, collects insurance premiums from covered private retirement pension plans and provides benefits to participants if their plan terminates with insufficient assets to support its guaranteed benefits. For multiemployer pension plans, the PBGCs payment of guaranteed benefits was not to become mandatory until January 1, 1978. During the intervening period, the PBGC had discretionary authority to pay benefits upon the termination of such plans. If the PBGC exercised its discretion to pay such benefits, employers who had contributed to the plan during the five years preceding its termination were liable to PBGC in amounts proportional to their share of the plans contributions during that period. As the mandatory coverage date approached, Congress became concerned that a ...
The difficulties of funding state pension schemes and the need to encourage people to save is a global phenomenon with no one size fits all answer, says Maltese prime minister Dr Lawrence Gonzi.. Speaking at a seminar hos- ted by Aberdeen Asset Management in Malta last week, Gonzi said the country had consulted the World Bank, the IMF and a host of independent experts in building its proposals, which it hopes to push through this year. The main problem is cutting costs. Malta has a net debt equivalent to 75 per cent of its GDP and needs to cut this to 65 per cent to meet the Maastricht requirements for entry into the euro, which the country hopes to achieve in 2008. Mirroring the situation in the UK, Malta is the latest European country to undergo root and branch pension reform. The country is looking to open up its pension system to allow private companies to compete after admitting that its state-run final-salary scheme is becoming too expensive. Gonzi says: Our existing pension system is ...
New Jersey legislators are considering moving new state and local public employees out of the Garden States underfunded pension systems into defined-contribution plans similar to 401(k) accounts.. New Jerseys total pension liability is $115 billion, reports the New Jersey Economic & Fiscal Policy Workgroup, a bipartisan blue-ribbon panel of 25 legislators and experts formed to propose solutions to the states economic and fiscal problems.. The panel reports the states traditional public pensions are only 56 percent funded, meaning the expected return on the investment of previous funds paid into the systems by taxpayers will not cover the projected cost of benefits. By 2030, New Jersey taxpayers will be obligated to pay an additional $7.1 billion into the states pension systems, which cover nearly 800,000 current and retired employees.. Shifting workers to defined-contribution plans is one of 30 recommendations for fiscal reforms made by the panel in its 2018 report, Path to ...

Right now Chicago Public Schools picks up 7 percent of employees pension contributions. But CPS plans to phase out its portion for certain classes of employees, including non-union workers beginning with the August 24 paycheck. Forrest Claypool, the newly-appointed CEO of Chicago Public Schools, says everyone must pitch in if the goal is to protect the classroom and teachers pensions. Many say the school district is facing its most serious fiscal challenge in years - and at the heart of it all: pensions and how to pay for them. CPS released its budget this week and it includes a variety of cost-saving measures, including 480 teachers layoffs. Critics call it unbalanced because it covers a pension shortfall with hundreds of millions of dollars from Springfield, which is far from guaranteed. But CPS officials say they have no choice but to rely on help from the capital, and that if that help doesnt come through, more borrowing and even deeper cuts will be necessary. Claypool joins us to talk about all

In previous studies the authors have found sick leave to be a predictor of future sick leave, unemployment and disability pension. Although sick leave reflects underlying health problems, some studies have suggested that sick leave may have consequences beyond the consequences of the underlying illness. However, few studies have aimed at studying consequences of sick leave while adjusting for ill health. This study aims to explore whether short-term sick leave increases the risk of future long-term sick leave, disability pension, and unemployment. Furthermore, we aim to control for the potentially confounding effects of physical and mental health status. Data were gathered from the Stockholm Public Health Cohort (SPHC), restricted to 11,156 employed individuals (48.6% men) aged 18-59, without long-term sick leave, disability pension or in-patient care the year before inclusion (2002). These were followed-up with regard to unemployment, long-term sick leave, and disability pension in 2006 and 2007. Odds

The fertility and able-bodied population rates are currently falling while life expectancy is increasing. 2019 was the worst year in demographics terms.. The fertility rate in Ukraine in 2019 reached its bottom in the countrys history; there were only 7.4 new-borns per 1,000 residents. There are fewer Ukrainians under the age of twelve months than residents of any other age up to and including 72 years, a situation we have never seen before. Ukraine is among the five countries of the world with the lowest fertility rates. We already have 13 million persons whose premiums to the Pension Fund of Ukraine are paid by others, and 11.2 million pensioners. this situation will only get worse in 30 years time due to demographics. Pension spending will increase. To mitigate these risks, we need to balance the two systems - solidarity financing and accumulative pension insurance. The accumulative system is independent of demographics but is open to financial risks while solidarity financing has quite the ...

The Public Sector Pension Plan was established in 1945 to provide retirement income to permanent employees of the Province of PEI, Health PEI and certain participating employers. The Plan was originally called the Civil Service Superannuation Fund, and the name was updated to the Public Sector Pension Plan in 2020.. The Minister of Finance of the Government of Prince Edward Island is responsible for the administration of the Plan and has delegated the day-to-day administrative duties to the Pensions & Benefits and Fiscal Management sections of the Department of Finance.. The assets of the Plan are held within the Province of Prince Edward Island Master Trust, which is administered by external investment managers. It operates under policy guidelines set by Executive Council and is supervised by an advisory committee to the Minister of Finance. The assets of the Plan are separate from the Operating Fund of the Province.. ...
The provisions of § 404.213 are applicable to computations under the old-start method, except for paragraphs (c) (1) and (2) and (d) of that section. Your primary insurance amount will be whichever of the following two amounts is larger: (a) One-half the primary insurance amount computed according to § 404.241 (before application of the cost of living amount); or (b) The primary insurance amount computed according to § 404.241 (before application of the cost of living amount), minus one-half the portion of your monthly pension which is due to noncovered work after 1956 and for which you were eligible in the first month you became eligible for Social Security benefits. If the result is not a multiple of $0.10, we will round to the next lower multiple of $0.10. (See § 404.213 (b)(3) if you are not eligible for a monthly pension in the first month you are entitled to Social Security benefits.) To determine the portion of your pension which is due to noncovered work after 1956, we consider the ...
What initially looked like an easy fix to save the Postal Service billions of dollars has suddenly turned into a political quagmire that will require members of Congress to wade deep into waters they had hoped to avoid. At issue is how, or if, to adjust the way the Postal Service pays into the Civil Service Retirement System. Last November, the Office of Personnel Management estimated that the Postal Service might be on the hook to overpay billions of dollars to cover workers pensions. OPM undertook the analysis at the request of the General Accounting Office, which has been trying to get a better handle on the Postal Services pension and health care liabilities. A GAO review of that work released Jan. 31 suggested that OPM made some broad assumptions that further complicate an already confounding situation. OPMs assessment found that the Postal Service would pay about $71 billion more than it actually needed to cover all the future costs of CSRS enrollees pensions. But OPMs analysis, among ...

A study by Northwestern Universitys Kellogg School of Management calculates the combined underfunding of pensions in all municipalities at $574 billion.

In this nationwide population-based cohort study using national Danish registries, in the period 1980-2008, our aim was to study employment and receipt of disability pension after central nervous system infections. All patients diagnosed between 20 and 55 years of age with meningococcal (n = 451), pneumococcal (n = 553), or viral (n = 1,433) meningitis or with herpes simplex encephalitis (n = 115), who were alive 1 year after diagnosis, were identified.

Public workers also set to receive pay increase. WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Oct. 25, 2016) - The premier of Niue has told the islanders that their country is debt free and this is why pensions are getting a nearly ten percent lift.. Toke Talagi was speaking during Niues constitution day celebrations last week, which marked 42 years of self government in free association with New Zealand.. The island is now debt free and can afford to increase fortnightly pensions from $US250 dollars to $US272 he said.. Public servants, the biggest single category of workers on Niue, have also been promised pay increases while their four-day work week will remain in place.. Mr Talagi said the population has grown to reach 1700, with expatriate Niueans returning home and building houses and accommodation units.. He said increased donations to churches and the number of residents who can afford overseas holidays are a sure sign of growing affluence.. New Zealands total aid package ...
Mark Perrault, a Northwestern Mutual wealth management advisor, hears the same thing time and time again, people who have pensions sleep better at night. But for private sector workers, pensions are largely a thing of the past.
I am pretty certain that the Aegis and the Sun mentioned the acting supers salary. Her retirement, while based on the top three earning years, will largely be determined by which retirement plan she is enrolled in. Until the late 1980s, the MD teacher retirement system had a generous pay out, while members paid 5% of salary as their share. When pension reform was instituted, those who decided to stay in the old system paid in 5 or 7% of gross salary. Those who paid 5% at retirement had a cap on colas. Those who paid 7 continued uncapped colas. There were options offering a cash payout and a switch to the reformed pensions system which has lower benefits and caps on colas. At that time, those who switched paid nothing into it….. That has changed.. So…. Ms. Canavan, depending on what plan she chose and how much she contributed can collect upon retirement anywhere from around 30% to about 70% of the average of her three highest years salaries.. In any case, all new hires after the 1980s reform ...

Downloadable! The option value model developed in an earlier paper is used to simulate the effect on retirement of changes in a firms pension plan compared to the effect of changes in Social Security provisions. The provisions of the firms pension plan have a much greater effect than Social Security regulations on the retirement decisions of the firms employees. The analysis supports the following conclusions: (1) Increasing the firms early retirement age from 55 to 60, for example, would reduce by almost 40 percent, from .48 to .30, the fraction of employees that is retired by age 60. (2) The effect of changes in Social Security rules, on the other hand, would be small. Raising the Social Security retirement ages by one year, for example, has very little effect on employee retirement rates. The proportion retired by age 62 is reduced by only about 4 percent. (3) Changes in Social Security provisions that would otherwise encourage workers to continue working can easily be offset by countervailing
In one of the largest mass protests since the fall of communism, around 50,000 Romanians took to the streets of Bucharest on Wednesday..

One year later, New Brunswick rehired Caputo as police director - the same position - at a $120,000 salary. For one job, he receives two checks, totaling $235,019 a year. Caputo did not respond to a request for comment.. For a privileged minority of public employees, benefits are so generous that many become pension millionaires without double-dipping. Meanwhile, state retirement funds face a deficit estimated from $36 billion to $144 billion.. Joseph Blaettler will rake in more than $4.5 million from the Police and Firemens Retirement Fund, if he reaches age 80, his statistical life expectancy.. At age 46, Blaettler began pocketing nearly $135,000 a year in retirement checks when he stepped down as Union City deputy police chief in 2009.

A retirement system official said Thursday a report showing that some public employees who retire collect more in pension benefits than they did while working was based on less than 2 percent of beneficiaries.. The analysis also does not reflect changes to the retirement plan made in 1985 that reduced pension payouts, said Tina Leiss, executive officer of the system.. The conclusions in the report issued by the Nevada Policy Research Institute, a conservative think tank based in Las Vegas, do not account for the vast majority of the members and retirees of the Public Employees Retirement System, she said.. It appears that the analysis was based on a review of 790 retirees whereas there are currently 49,179 retirees (not including survivors and beneficiaries) receiving benefits from the system, Leiss said. Over the last 3 fiscal years, approximately 12 percent of those retiring in those years did so with 30 or more years of service while approximately 88 percent did so with less than 30 years ...

USPS continues to be in a serious financial crisis, with little liquidity in the short term and a challenging financial outlook in the long term as profitable First-Class Mail volume continues to decline. Critical decisions by Congress are needed on postal reform legislation that has been proposed in both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives. Various proposals would restructure the financing of postal retiree health benefits, including required payments to prefund these benefits; enable USPS to introduce a new health plan for postal employees and retirees; and restructure the funding of postal pensions, including addressing a potential surplus in funding postal pensions under FERS.. GAO has previously testified that a comprehensive package of legislative actions is needed so that USPS can achieve financial viability and assure adequate benefits funding for more than 1 million postal employees and retirees. GAO has also previously reported on various approaches Congress could consider ...
Dr Anna Tilba suggests how we can protect ourselves against the scams and frauds, which are increasing during Covid-19. As coronavirus sweeps across the globe, leaving a devastating trail of sickness, death and economic and financial instability, it is also creating favourable conditions for unscrupulous scammers who prey on vulnerable people and taking advantage of panic, uncertainty and financial strain.. In particular, fraudsters are trying to pressure people to transfer away their entire pension savings into safer financial options in order to protect it from future economic depression, employer insolvency and/or to be able to access their retirement pots earlier in a time of need. Scammers would often charge extremely high transfer fees, leaving the retirement prospects of scam victims in ruins.. Worryingly, according to the research[1] done by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Pensions Regulator last year, 23% of adults aged between 45 and 65 would answer a cold call and discuss ...
Detroits pension debt holders dropped the last major objection to the citys $7 billion debt-cutting plan, as the biggest U.S. municipality to file bankruptcy began its last push to leave court oversight.... The pension debt investors hold about $1 billion in debt that was raised by the city to shore up its retirement system in 2006. It will be canceled under the plan, and the investors and bond insurers that guaranteed it will be given $141 million in new notes and land instead.

All five of troubled Air Canadas unions have agreed to give it a 21-month grace period in pension funding, pending federal approval, union officials said.. The Canadian Union of Public Employees, which represents more than 6,700 flight attendants, and the Air Canada Pilots Association came to the agreement Monday night, the Globe and Mail reported.. The money-losing airline will not be required to make past service contributions for 21 months, starting July 30, the agreement says. Air Canadas pension contributions are now about $2.9 billion behind, the report said.. As part of the deal, the five unions will nominate a representative to the board of directors, and a profit-sharing program will begin in 2010 when the economy is expected to be healthier, union officials said.. Along with the unions voluntary pay freeze, top executives would also see their salaries frozen and bonuses canceled until the spring of 2011, the report said.. On June 8, the International Association of Machinists and ...
FREDERICTON - The provincial government is poised to hand over nearly $18 million to bail out a private pension plan, says the New Brunswick Association of Nursing Homes.. The association, which represents the board members of the provinces 62 nursing homes, said next weeks provincial budget will include a $10.6-million trust fund to subsidize the shortfall in the private pension plan for nursing home employees such as licensed practical nurses and housekeeping staff.. Government will cover the remainder of the $17.8-million deficiency by writing a cheque for $770,000 annually for the next 14 years, said association president Pat Diotte.. The claim comes just days after Finance Minister Victor Boudreau warned New Brunswickers to brace themselves for program cuts in the upcoming budget.. Government refused to confirm the associations assertions as the provincial budget will be released on Tuesday.. Charles Cirtwill, acting president of the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies, said although ...

The cost of teachers retirement benefits is higher than those for private-sector professionals, researchers contend in a study that contrasts with other published reports on the topic. The study draws on data from the National Compensation Survey, conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, to compare teachers fringe benefits with those received by employees in a set of private-sector occupations that includes business and financial managers, accountants, computer programmers, engineers, lawyers, and nurses. It found that the rate of employer contributions to retirement benefits for public school teachers in 2008 amounted to 14.6 percent of earnings for teachers, far outpacing the 10.4 percent figure for private professionals. Economists from the University of Arkansas and the University of Missouri-Columbia conducted the study, which appears this month in Education Next, a journal published by Stanford Universitys Hoover Institution. In contrast, a study published in June 2007 in Phi ...
