Retirement policies cover the design of the public pension system in both its insurance component (contribution schemes) and its redistributive component. Costs related to retirement pensions represent a substantial portion of public expenditure in France (13% of GDP in 2011) and the ageing of the population constitutes a major challenge both for the well-being of the population and for the long-term sustainability of public finances.

IPP Focus. Researchers at the IPP evaluate the impact of recent pension reforms, and investigate matters related to the employment of older workers, the family component of the French retirement system, debates about simplifying the public pension schemes, balancing the state budget in the long-term, and the consequences of wage trajectories and unexpected health problems for individual retirees.
