Sustainability of state pension benefits

The state pension in the Netherlands is based on a so-called pay-as-you-go system, because it is financed by tax contributions. The sustainability of this approach is closely linked to the demographic evolution of the population, life expectancy and inflation. The rising costs are partly compensated by making the retirement age dependent on life expectancy. This research project focuses on the impact of rising life expectancy on the sustainability of this approach.
