IFS to compare stakeholder with ten other countries

The Institute for Fiscal Studies plans to compare the Government&#39s stakeholder proposals with reforms in ten other countries.


The IFS will publish the findings of their comparative study on OECD countries&#39 pension systems and strategies for reform on February 4.


The conference will cover both public and private pensions, and compare pensioner incomes.


The IFS expect lessons from the other countries to influence imminent changes in the UK scheme. It will for example examine New Zealand&#39s new approach to the taxation of pensions and at some European countries&#39 plans to postpone retirement.


A government green paper on pension reform will be published later this month.
