Adequate retirement paths in defined contribution and defined benefits pension schemes

Alicja Jajko-Siwek


An adequate pension benefit is one of the most important values for future pensioners. They want to know how they should live, and what kind of decisions they should make in their family and work life in order to achieve an adequate pension. This article aims to identify a life trajectory which leads to an adequate pension in different pension schemes. The defined contribution and defined benefit pension scheme is considered. This research has been done by using sequence analysis and cluster analysis. The data used in the study come from the third round of SHARE 50+ in Europe (SHARELIFE). The results show differences in people’s life trajectories depending on the type of pension system to which the future pensioners belong. An adequate pension in DC system is connected with longer time of education and longer seniority. People in that kind of pension system retire later and they have less children.
