Abstract
In our paper, we discuss pension expenditure as one of the main indicators of pension system sustainability. However, given the large demographic diversity between the European countries, public spending on pensions is hard to compare. We proposed two alternative indicators visualising the level of pension expenditure. The first is the quotient of pension expenditure and GDP and old-age dependency ratio. The second replaces the old-age dependency ratio with the proportion of population aged 65 and over. Such standardisation of the commonly used pension expenditure to GDP indicator makes it possible to provide for the demographic effect and this way it facilitates a comparison of pension expenditures between countries with very different population structures.

Using Panel Tax Data to Examine the Transition to Retirement,” by Peter J. Brady, Steven Bass, Jessica Holland, and Kevin Pierce (April 2017, .pdf and Excel format, 86p.). Note: Link to related Excel tables (www.irs.gov/pub/irs-soi/17rpbbhptables.xls).

Abstract:

Using panel data from the Internal Revenue Service’s Statistics of Income (SOI) Division, we find that most individuals do not experience a reduction in inflation-adjusted spendable income after claiming Social Security. We also examine the composition of income after claiming and find that both Social Security benefits and non-Social Security retirement distributions typically represent substantial shares of income. Examining the five-year period from one year before individuals first receive Social Security retirement benefits to three years after, 81 percent of individuals had income, either directly or through a spouse, from employer retirement plans, annuities, or IRAs; and another 8 percent had a Form 1099-R (indicating a retirement account transaction, such as a rollover, that did not generate income), a Form 5498 (indicating IRA ownership), or both. This study uses the SOI 1999 Edited Panel of individual income tax returns, with information through tax year 2010, supplemented with data from information returns. We structure the data to follow individual taxpayers—specifically, individuals who were the primary or secondary taxpayer on a joint return or the primary taxpayer on a non-joint return
in 1999—rather than tax returns. Information returns and various schedules filed with Form 1040 allow us to allocate labor income, Social Security benefits, and retirement income (pension, annuity, and IRA distributions) to primary and secondary filers on joint returns. Information returns also allow us to measure the income of all 1999 taxpayers through 2010 regardless of whether they filed a tax return in a subsequent year or not. We focus on working individuals age 55 to 61 in 1999 who did not receive Social Security benefits in 1999. Comparison with U.S. population counts suggests that nearly all
individuals in this category filed a tax return in 1999.
