Projecting the Impact of Changes in Superannuation Policy: a microsimulation approach

Simon Kelly, Ann Harding, Richard Percival

    Research output: Contribution to conference (non-published works)Paper

    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 people entering retirement over the next 40 years. It considers the
    impact of a change in superannuation policy - namely, a higher level of
    compulsory contribution - from both the individual and government perspective.
