A research brief about retirement income systems across Asia. The report discusses the fiscal sustainability of pensions, considering structure, generosity, benefit access and labour force participation. The authors then discuss the adequacy of pension benefits in terms of coverage and withdrawal options. Finally, they discuss private pensions, demand, regulation and opportunities for regional players. The authors conclude that policymakers should future-proof their systems by paying attention to structure, generosity and benefit access, as well as ensuring adequacy through expanded coverage, appropriate preservation and withdrawal options. This research brief is the second in a three-part series that looks at Asia in the ageing century.
