COMENIUS MÖNCHENGLADBACH Wenn Jung und Alt sich neu begegnen
In our European society, everybody wants to stay young forever while the population is getting older every minute, which is a big contradiction.
WIE STELLT SICH DIE BEVÖLKERUNGSGRUPPE DER PENSIONÄRE IN EUREM LAND IM VERHÄLTNIS ZU ANDEREN BEVÖLKERUNGSGRUPPEN IN ZAHLEN DAR? How does the population of pensioners in your country relate to other population groups?
WIE HOCH IST DER ANTEIL DER RENTNER/PENSIONÄRE AN DER GESAMTBEVÖLKERUNG? What is the percentage of pensioners in the total population?
DER RUHESTAND IM LÄNDERVERGLEICH 1. How is the age structure in our countries? Life expectancy is rising in every country a lot of old people a lot of money is needed to finance their pensions, their lives Rising life expectancy is positive for the pensioneers Negative for the finances While there are more and more older people and the number of births isn´t rising much, it becomes difficult to finance so many pensioneers. 2. Solutions for that problems : Less money for older people More taxes for working people work longer More births More immigration (of young people) Stop spending money on „unsual“ things ⇒ save money
WIE VIELE KINDER WURDEN/WERDEN IN DIESEN JAHREN JEWEILS GEBOREN? BEVÖLKERUNGSDIAGRAMME WIE WIRD DER RUHESTAND IN EUREM LAND FINANZIERT? How many children were born in these years? Population Charts
WIE HOCH WAR DIE LEBENSERWARTUNG IN EUREM LAND BEI DER GEBURT DER JAHRGÄNGE: 1950, 1980 UND 2010, 2050? What was the life expectancy in your country in the years 1950, 1980 and 2010?
WIE WIRD DER RUHESTAND IN UNSEREN LÄNDERN FINANZIERT? How are pensions financed in our countries?
WIE IST DIE RENTE FINANZIERT (GESETZLICH? PRIVAT?) UND NACH WELCHEM SYSTEM ERFOLGEN EIN- UND AUSZAHLUNGEN? What are pension funds (Public? Private?) How do deposits and withdrawals happen? Pensions are funded according to the three-pillar strategy: compulsory public pension, pension provided by the company, private pension: We pay money to the state a month which the elder people get When we are old the young people pay our pension (Generation-Contract, pay-as-you-go system) In all the different countries the pensions are paid by the state. But also people have the possibility to have their own private pension contract. There is also the possibility to get a pension from your company.
AB WELCHEM LEBENSJAHR KANN MAN DIE RENTE/PENSION BEZIEHEN? At what age is a person eligible to receive a pension? NLBLDCZ 65 -age to receive pension rises every year people born in 1964 get pension at 67 Men: Women: depends on how many children the women get -age to receive pension rises for people born 1977/+
WIE WIRD DER RUHESTAND IN UNSEREN LÄNDERN FINANZIERT? 1 Monatliche Durchschnittsrente in Euro Countries BNLLDCZ Single persons Married couples Germany = 40-50% Conclusion: In Belgium, people are obtaining the highest percentage of their income (75%) when they are retired and in Germany the lowest (40- 50%)
2 Company pension The second possibility to save costs is the possibility that your work gives you a little extra for later when you´re retired. It exists in all our countries but it depends on the company where you work. 3 Private pension Private pensions are very common in Europe but there is also a difference. Belgium and Germany are the same and have an extra private income of 5% and 20%. In the Czech Republic this solution is just introduced. In Luxembourg it´s totally absent. And in the Netherlands it is an important part of the income.
Too many pensioners in comparison to active people Young people have to pay their pension Less progeny Birthrate (2011)D:1,36 B:1,84 N:1,76 L:1,52 CZ:1,43 Today over three people pay for one pensioner 2060 probably 1,3 people pay for one pensioner That affects the collapse of the public pension People have to pay more for private foundation and more for pension tax Less money for taxpayers to have enough when they get old Problems of pension-financing
First solution: Taxpayer have to work longer o Rise of the retirement age o People really work until the retirement age Stay fit/ keep being informed o Earlier enter in occupation Less being at school Second solution: More worker affect more taxpayer o More incentives for working Higher wages Better working conditions o More incentives to get children Longer, earlier, more care institutions More money for parents o Young migrant workers which pay tax Solutions for financing problems
