To induce workers to retire later, it has been proposed to strengthen the link between retirement age and benefit level. The present paper is devoted to analyzing the long-run financial implications of such a reform. We show that with actuarial adjustments the long-run contribution rate is an increasing function of the retirement age chosen by workers. Moreover, the implicit tax paid to the pension system by a participant can increase in the long run if the retirement age rises in response to a steep adjustment rule. In this sense, the proposed cure may worsen the disease. Finally, we show how the negative effects can be avoided by forming a capital stock from the additional revenues due to later retirement.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
