Retirement & Pensions

Countries around the world are reforming their social security and pension systems.

Many countries struggle with aging populations and declining birth rates, while others launch old-age safety nets in response to economic development. U.S. employers have shifted from defined-benefit pension plans toward defined-contribution plans, placing greater risks and responsibilities on individuals as they prepare for retirement. Moreover, politics and funding limitations have created uncertainties around the Social Security system.
