    Abstract

    The extent to which baby boomers can provide for themselves in retirement is
    becoming a critical issue for government policy makers. Clearly, the burden on
    future governments will be influenced by the level of superannuation assets that
    baby boomers take into retirement.
    This paper uses microsimulation to make projections of the superannuation assets of
    baby boomers as they enter retirement over the next 20 years. It considers the
    current situation of the baby boomers and then presents their circumstances in 2020
    under differing superannuation policy — namely, a higher level of compulsory
    contribution. The impact is considered from both the individual and government
    perspective.
