    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.
