Interactions between national and labour market based pensions in Norway: pension outcomes and policy processes

Project period September 2014 - December 2017
Project employer The Research Council of Norway
Project nr. 10049

Project Participants

Fafo and the Institute for Social Research were carrying out the project, and it was led by Fafo.

Project Background

There is considerable research and debate on the reform of the old age pension in the National Insurance Scheme in Norway, but less is known about the related changes in the contractual pension scheme (AFP) and the consequences of the new regulations for occupational pension schemes in the private sector.

Researching the overall pension system and the interaction between its different parts is crucial in order to understand changes in the underlying logic of the overall system and the strategic manoeuvres of various key actors, as well as its impact on the distribution of individual total pension levels and the resulting effect on extended work careers.

The project therefore focused on the overall pension system and the interplay between various schemes.

Project Aim

The overall ambition has been to map out and model the full impact of the 2011 pension reform, to improve understanding of the policy processes shaping various parts of the reform, and to place these findings in a broader European context.
