The Future of the Public Sector Pensions
This PPI research report on the future of the public sector pension schemes:
- Identifies the policy objectives that any Government considering further reforms to the public sector pensions might aim to address
- Identifies a set of possible further reforms for the public sector pension schemes that the Government could consider
- Analyses a set of possible reforms against the identified policy objectives and identifies what the implications of such reforms might be for public sector employees, and for the overall affordability and sustainability of the schemes.
The PPI is not calling for further reforms of the public sector pension schemes. The objective of this research is to provide an independent evidence base to help policymakers to understand the implications of alternative policies. It should also be noted that there is a very broad range of reform options that the Government could consider. This report sets out a small number of the possible range of reforms in order to highlight some of the main implications of different types of reforms.
