    Reform of Reduced Earning Capacity Pension Cuts Risk of Poverty, but Comes Late

Der Wegfall des Erwerbseinkommens wird zwar durch die Erwerbsminderungsrente in der gesetzlichen Rentenversicherung versichert. Diese Rente ist aber so niedrig, dass Erwerbsgeminderte einem sehr hohen Armutsrisiko ausgesetzt sind und überdurchschnittlich häufig Leistungen ...

    Heating and Electricity Expenses: Saving Incentives Not Impacting Basic Income Recipients

    Basic income benefits cover recipients’ actual heating expenses as long as they are not unusually high. In contrast, their electricity expenses are only covered via a lump sum at the standard rate.

Using Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) data, it can be seen that basic income ...
