A. “Defined Benefit Pension Plan Distribution Decisions by Public Sector Employees,” by Robert L. Clark, Melinda S. Morrill, David Vanderweide (w18488, October 2012, .pdf format, 57p.).

Abstract:

Studies examining pension distribution choices have found that the tendency of private-sector workers is to select lump sum distributions instead of life annuities. In the public sector, defined benefit pensions usually offer lump sum distributions equal to employee contributions, not the present value of the annuity. Using administrative data from the North Carolina state and local government retirement systems, we find that over two-thirds of public sector workers under age 50 separating prior to retirement from public plans in North Carolina left their accounts open and did not request a cash distribution from the pension system within one year of separation. Furthermore, the evidence suggests many separating workers, particularly those with short tenure, may be forgoing important benefits due to lack of knowledge, understanding, or accessibility of benefits. In contrast to prior research in the private sector, we find no evidence of a bias toward cash distributions for public employees in North Carolina.

B. “The Revenue Demands of Public Employee Pension Promises,” by Robert Novy-Marx and Joshua D. Rauh (w18489, October 2012, .pdf format, 64p.).

Abstract:

We calculate increases in contributions required to achieve full funding of state and local pension systems in the U.S. over 30 years. Without policy changes, contributions would have to increase by 2.5 times, reaching 14.1% of the total own-revenue generated by state and local governments. This represents a tax increase of $1,385 per household per year, around half of which goes to pay down legacy liabilities while half funds the cost of new promises. We examine sensitivity to asset return assumptions, wage correlations, the treatment of workers not currently in Social Security, and endogenous geographical shifts in the tax base.

C. “Linking Benefits to Investment Performance in US Public Pension Systems by Robert Novy-Marx, Joshua D. Rauh” (w18489, October 2012, .pdf format, 44p.).

This paper calculates the effect that introducing risk-sharing during either retirement or the working life would have on public sector pension liabilities. We begin by considering the introduction of a variable annuity for the retirement phase, modeled on the Wisconsin Retirement System, in which positive benefit adjustments are granted only if asset returns surpass 5% but benefits cannot fall below their initial levels. This change would reduce unfunded accrued liabilities by around 25%, and would lower the annual contribution increases required to target full funding in 30 years by 11%. If there is no minimum benefit guarantee, the impact of introducing variable annuities is substantially larger: the unfunded liability would fall by over half and required annual contribution increases would fall by 44%. Alternative measures that have similar effects on costs include increasing employee contributions by 10.3% of pay while keeping benefits unchanged; or giving employees a collective DC plan with an employer contribution of 10% of pay for future service. We discuss these results in the context of models of lifecycle portfolio choice, which suggest that employees should generally prefer to take risk earlier in their lives rather than later.

A. “Family Sponsorship and Late-Age Migration in Aging America,” by Marta Tienda and Stacie Carr (April 2012, .pdf format, 31p.).

Abstract:

We use the Immigrants Admitted to the United States (micro-data) supplemented with special tabulations from the Department of Homeland Security to examine how family reunification impacts the age composition of new immigrant cohorts since 1980. We develop a family migration multiplier measure for the period 1981 to 2009 that improves on prior studies by including IRCA immigrants and relaxing unrealistic assumptions required by synthetic cohort measures. Results show that every 100 initiating immigrants admitted between 1981-85 sponsored an average of 260 family members; the comparable figure for initiating immigrants for the 1996-2000 cohort is 345 family members. Furthermore, the number of family migrants ages 50 and over rose from 44 to 74 per 100 initiating migrants. The discussion considers the health and welfare implications of late-age migration in a climate of growing fiscal restraint and an aging native population.

B. “Age at Immigration and the Incomes of Older Immigrants, 1994 to 2010,” by Marta Tienda and Kevin O’Neil (April 2012, .pdf format, 22p.).

Abstract:

Immigrants who enter the United States later in life comprise a growing share of legal permanent resident admissions. Due to their short working lives in the US and barriers to obtaining earned and means-tested public benefits since 1996, late-age immigrants may be at significant economic disadvantage relative to their counterparts who immigrate at younger ages. Using data on immigrants aged 65 and above from the 1994 to 2010 Current Population Surveys, we show that late-age immigration is associated with significantly lower personal incomes and lower participation in Social Security and Medicare, both of which have minimal work requirements. Entry at an older age is also associated with higher rates of participation in means-tested benefit programs, such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid. For older immigrants, entry after the 1996 welfare reform law is associated with lower personal incomes and lower rates of receipt of SSI and Medicaid; however, we find only modest differences between pre- and post 1996 entrants in the relationship between age at entry and economic outcomes in older age.

The aim of MIDUS is to investigate the role of behavioral, psychological, and social factors in accounting for age-related variations in health and well-being in a nation sample of Americans. Over the years MIDUS has grown both in complexity and in the number of studies making up this important collection. This Webinar will review the structure of the MIDUS collection and offer insight into its research applications.”
