Commission for a Reliable Generational Compact

With the intention to develop proposals to reform the German public pension system, the German Federal government had installed a pension commission in which Max-Planck director and SHARE managing director, Axel Börsch-Supan, together with representatives from the ruling political parties, the social partners, and two other scientists, participated. This pension commission, called "Commission for a Reliable Generational Compact” (“Kommission Verlässlicher Generationenvertrag”), formulated their final advisory positions in a report to the German government in March 2020. SHARE contributed findings about the development of health and retirement behavior in Germany to the report.
