Abstract

At the beginning of the twentieth century, pension schemes were set up to provide a replacement income during a well-deserved though short period of retirement (on average five years). After the Second World War, these schemes were substantially improved to provide more generous benefi ts over a longer period. At the time, however, nobody even dreamed of the extended life expectancy that we enjoy today — an expectancy that continues to rise.
