    Workshop Geförderte private Altersvorsorge im Umbruch?

    Im Workshop werden zwei Modelle einer andersgestalteten privaten Altersvorsorge – die Deutschlandrente und das Vorsorgekonto – erörtert. Beide Modelle wollen die private Altersvorsorge durch ein Standard-/Basisprodukt verbessern. Aber wie würde in den beiden Modellen das private Vorsorgen konkret gestaltet werden? Wäre diese Vorsorge freiwillig oder obligatorisch, wie würde die Kapitalanlage erfolgen, wer würde die Produkte verwalten, wer anbieten, gebe es sozialpolitische Komponenten, soll es sich um garantierte oder Produkte ohne Garantiezusagen handeln? Der Workshop bietet Raum für einen Austausch über all diese Aspekte zwischen Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft und Politik.

    Wir freuen uns auf Ihre Teilnahme und bitten um Ihre verbindliche Anmeldung per E-Mail an Sibylle Kremser (). Anmeldeschluss ist der 25. November 2017.

    Symposium Die Zukunft des Rentensystems – Verteilungswirkungen und Finanzierung von Rentenreformen

    Hermann Buslei und Peter Haan vom DIW Berlin zeigen in Impulsvorträgen den aktuellen Forschungsstand zu Finanzierungseffekten der Anhebung des Renteneintrittsalters und zu Verteilungswirkungen der gesetzlichen Rente auf.

    Im anschließenden Panel soll diskutiert werden, welche Standpunkte die Parteien hinsichtlich rentenpolitischer Themen, insbesondere der Anhebung des Renteneintrittsalters, der Aufhebung des Äquivalenzprinzips in der Rente sowie der Einführung einer Mindestrente vertreten. Darüber hinaus soll die künftige Rolle der betrieblichen und privaten Altersvorsorge beleuchtet werden.

    Wir freuen uns über Ihre verbindliche Anmeldung an events@diw.de bis zum 25. November 2017.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Stricter Eligibility Criteria in Disability Insurance: Effects on Diagnoses Protection

    Since the 2001 reform of the disability pension in Germany, occupational invalidity does no longer qualify for a pension. While before the reform the incapability to work in the former job was sufficient for a pension claim, the new regulations require an incapability to work at all. Yet, cohorts born before 1961 have been exempted from the reform to protect their confidence in former legislation. This exogenous variation along birth cohorts allows us to estimate the causal reform effects on pension take-up rates and diagnoses composition using a Regression Discontinuity Design. Working with a 25% sample from the registers of the Statutory Pension Scheme, we show that take-up drops significantly. A disproportionally high share of newly non-eligible individuals suffers from musculoskeletal disorders.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Labor Market Responses to Tax Reforms

    In a high-tax labor market like France, tax reductions are a popular tool to support employment of low-wage workers. The welfare implications of these exemptions go beyond the directly affected. We ask three questions. First, because employment and wages are determined by both supply and demand of labor, what are the equilibrium effects of tax reductions on different workers? Second, since policy-makers' horizons may be short, are short-run effects very different from long-run outcomes? Finally, thirdly, who should benefit from tax reductions? To answer these questions we estimate an equilibrium search-and-matching model with worker and firm heterogeneity based on French administrative data. While a narrowly focused low-wage tax reduction has distributional advantages, it negatively affects productivity by encouraging job creation from low-productivity firms, making it harder for high-productivity workers to find suitable matches. We simulate short-run effects on employment and welfare and find that they may be contrary to the long-run equilibrium effects.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The effect of parental education on the offspring's mental health

    We are the first to estimate the causal effect of parental education on a wide range of the adult offspring's mental health outcomes. Theoretical considerations predict positive direct and indirect effects of parental education on the offspring's mental health. But the relation between parental education and mental health outcomes is plagued by endogeneity. To circumvent this problem, we exploit exogenous variation in schooling which is completely unrelated to the offspring's mental health. In contrast to our theoretical considerations, we find no positive effects of parental education on the offspring's mental health. Moreover, preliminary results point at a negative effect of parental education and the offspring's mental health.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen Retirement and social connection in old age

    Facing an aging population, many societies discuss policies to prolong work lives. At the individual level, such policies could affect social connectedness in several ways. On the one hand, prolonged work lives could promote a healthier social life at advanced ages by maintaining job-related networks for longer. On the other hand, retirement might boost quantity and quality of social networks by an increase in leisure time. This paper sheds light on the net effects of retirement on social wellbeing and the elderly’s social networks with a particular focus on heterogeneity patterns. Using data from SHARE, we analyze whether country, gender, or education are important dimensions of heterogeneity. Potential endogeneity of the individual retirement status is accounted for using an instrumental variables approach. We thereby exploit variation in the individual retirement decision that is induced by pensionable age thresholds. The results suggest that retirement is not an important determinant for social connectedness. Moreover, effect heterogeneity is not particularly pronounced in the dimensions under study.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Increasing Longevity Gap and the Pension System

    We use social security records to document the heterogeneity in life expectancy by lifetime earnings for West Germany and we analyze how this longevity gap has evolved over cohorts. In line with previous studies, we provide evidence that the earnings-related longevity gap is increasing over cohorts. We then propose a decomposition to disentangle the role of the increasing earnings inequality over cohorts and the effect of changes in the earnings gradient on life expectancy. Finally, we study the distributional implications of the increasing longevity gap for the pension system. First, we show how the heterogeneity in life expectancy affects the distribution and the inequality of social security wealth and we document how this has evolved between the cohorts. Second, we calculate contribution/benefit ratios and compare the rates by lifetime earnings and between cohorts. Third, we extend the analysis by also accounting for survivor pensions and heterogeneous life expectancies of surviving spouses.

    Cluster-Seminar Öffentliche Finanzen und Lebenslagen The Effect of Pension Reforms on Savings Behavior

    Many OECD countries are currently undergoing reforms of their statutory pension schemes. In theory, a decrease of pension generosity can have a positive or negative effect on private savings - depending on the corresponding level of employment effects. Thus, it is an empirical question to determine the sign of the effect. A particular reform of the German Statutory Pension Scheme lifted the early retirement age (ERA) of women. The reform was implemented along birth cohorts, allowing for an intuitive identification strategy and causal interpretation of effects.
    While previous studies found positive effects of other generosity decreasing pension reforms on private savings, this is the first study isolating the effect of an increase of the ERA on savings. An upward-shift of the ERA by 3 to 5 years has a statistically and economically significant negative effect on private monthly savings of single women. The effects in the subsample of couples are insignificant.

    Marco Francesconi (University of Essex) will serve as the program chair and Daniel D. Schnitzlein (DIW Berlin, Leibniz University Hannover) as coordinator of the local organizing team. The keynote speakers will be Marianne P. Bitler (University of California-Irvine) and David Figlio (Northwestern University).
    The presidential address will be given by Arthur van Soest (Tilburg University). As part of the 30th anniversary of the Society, there will be a series of special sessions delivered by past presidents of ESPE.

    The paper submission site will open by November 1, 2015. The submission deadline is February 1, 2016. Acceptance decisions will be announced by April 1, 2016.
