Chapter 2 Challenging Statutory Pensions Reforms in an Aging Europe: Adequacy Versus Sustainability Gabriel Amitsis Introduction Half of the population today in EU countries is 40 years old or more.

However, the length of the shock and the financial situation of the system when the crisis hits crucially affect how the system can handle the payment burden in the short and long term. Pension reforms have been based on certain assumptions of growth and returns on paid contributions. If pension systems are unable to handle the effects of lower than expected returns or a narrower contribution base due to unemployment, this could ultimately affect the adequacy of benefits. However, a system that cannot pay out adequate pensions is not sustainable in the long run, as its social or even political credibility will decrease.

While this issue calls for further investigation (European Commission 2010c), as adequacy is a multi-level, contextual concept, it would be reasonable to argue that greater sustainability has been secured by introducing a greater element of conditionality into future pension provision. Obtaining replacement rates similar to those of the recent past will require people to work substantially more and longer and in many cases people will also have to increase their contributions to voluntary pension savings schemes.
