Research brief on retirement income - part I

Rafal Chomik, Simon Graham, Sophie Yan, Hazel Bateman, John Piggott

This series of three CEPAR research briefs explores the current state, and projected future, of Australia’s retirement income system, marrying policy developments with the latest research. Brief 1 describes the demographic context and structure of the system, how retirement resources compare across benchmarks, countries, and generations. Brief 2 focuses on the public, poverty-alleviation element of Australia’s retirement income, primarily the Age Pension. Brief 3 looks at private, income replacement provision, particularly superannuation.
