The Politics of Public Service Pensions

  • Einar Overbye


The state performs three pension-political roles. First, it provides public pensions. Second, it regulates the private — including the occupational — pension sector. Third, it provides occupational pensions for its own employees. The three roles as provider, regulator and employer are in principle separate from each other, but in practice tend to get mixed up.
