Critics of the present German system argue that the downward adjustment of the pension for early retirees is too small compared with a ‘fair’ system and thus encourages early retirement. We discuss several notions of ‘fairness’ of early-retirement provisions and propose a concept called ‘distributive neutrality’, which states that the ratio between total benefits and total contributions should not depend systematically on the individual's ability. By applying this concept to the German retirement benefit formula and taking empirically estimated relationships between annual income (as a proxy for ability), life expectancy and retirement age into account, we show that at the present discount rate of 3.6% per year there is redistribution from low to high earners, which, surprisingly, could be attenuated by raising the discount rate.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Breyer, Friedrich</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Hupfeld, Stefan</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/33508"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>On the Fairness of Early-Retirement Provisions</dcterms:title> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-03-30T13:20:32Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
