Pension System PDF Print E-mail

The FRFG research result the most often quoted in the field of intergenerationally just pensions policy is the so-called “divisional solution ”. The main idea was developed by Joerg Tremmel. It has been published in “Ihr habt dieses Land nur von uns geborgt” (“You have only borrowed this country from us”):
After this scheme has been calculated by the ifo-institute, the divisional solution by Zechmeister and Tremmel was published in the magazine “Social Security”(in german).

Numerous articles in edition 1/2002 of the FRFG magazine about “Financial intergenerational justice” deals with pension reform; plus, you find a “letter of the young generation”.
Because of diverse publications about intergenerationally equitable pensions policy, the FRFG has been invited by Minister of Social Affairs Walter Riester to a long discussion in the federal ministry, where the FRFG representatives Joerg Tremmel, Michael Zechmeister and Jakob von Weizsäcker and several chief officials of the ministry took part.
Unfortunately, Minister Riester didn’t accept the transparent divisional solution, but the considerably more complex proposal of a discount factor (which later on has been replaced by the sustainability-factor of the Rürup commission).

The FRFG’s expertise is not restricted to this divisional solution. Aside, in its position paper, you will find a long discourse about basic pension, capital cover system, inclusion of public officials and self employed workers etc.

The FRFG has been invited to a number of lectures and talk shows, in order to present its idea of an intergenerationally equitable pension reform.
