Table on household retirement resources

Back to Issues Under Discussion

Description of the issue
Funding retirement incomes for an ageing population, increasing debt concerns and the sustainability of consumption patterns are issues that are being addressed by the AEG. In this regard, the AEG is reviewing the development of a table on household retirement resources which is intended to provide extensive and detailed information on the various household resources for retirement, including the scope of assets and cross-border transactions. Further work is required regarding the delineation of social assistance benefits and the possible inclusion of assets such as owner-occupied dwellings.

For more information see paragraphs 11 to 14 of the conclusions of the 9th AEG meeting.

See issue 22 of the Research Agenda.
