Pension reform for all : submission to the Pension Review of measures to strengthen the financial security of seniors, carers and people with a disability / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Naughtin, Gerrry.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008Description: iv, 12 p. : ill. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence submission to the Pension Review .Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: There are strong grounds for the provision of immediate assistance to Australian pensioners. However, immediate assistance will not address the broader structural reforms required to achieve lasting benefits. Adequate pension reform requires comprehensive review of the taxation and income transfers systems, a task being undertaken by the Henry Review. The Pension Review should ensure additional support for people experiencing significant hardship until the recommendations of the broader review have been implemented. Substantial changes of the pension base prior to the completion of a system-wide review would be premature and unwise. Therefore, short-term assistance should be framed within the existing architecture of the annual adjustment system, bonuses and supplementary payments schemes. Adjustments to the aged, carer and disability pensions over the next three years should be through the mechanisms of the bonus system, increased rent assistance and utility allowances rather adjustment to the pension base. This submission sets out some broader issues that the Brotherhood considers must be examined by the Henry Review. A fair and sustainable solution will require additional public expenditure, as well as review of the regressive nature of many current taxation, concession and benefit arrangements. Australia needs a more integrated and equitable incomes and benefit transfers and taxation system for the twenty-first century. The Henry Review provides the vehicle for recommending such a comprehensive framework. The terms of the Pension Review and recent public debate about the adequacy of pensions have focused on pensions for older Australians, carers and people with a disability. While there is strong community and political support for additional assistance for these groups, there is no justification for excluding other income support recipients. Fairness requires that the aged, carers and people with a disability should not be advantaged at the expense of other groups Availability: Items available for loan: BSL Archives (1).

Retire Later or Work Harder? /

by Bell, David N.F | Institute for the Study of Labor | Hart, Robert A.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2010Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2010 Bibliography : p. 31-32Summary: We compare two policies of increasing British state pension provision: (a) increase the pensionable age of men and women, (b) maintain the existing retirement age but require older workers to work longer per-period hours. There are reasons for policy makers to give serious consideration to the under-researched alternative (b). First, from wage - hours contract theory we know that there are potential gains to both workers and firms of allowing hours to rise in work experience. Second, there is strong evidence that job satisfaction rises in age. Third, there has in any case been a significant overall increase in the hours supplied by older workers in the last two decades. We review the relevant theory, model the trade-off between later retirement versus increased work intensity, produce relevant background facts, and provide estimates of the policy trade-offs.Availability: (1)
