 Subject: Commission green paper proposals on the reform of pensions systems
 Answer in writing 

A number of EU Member States have introduced mechanisms for the automatic and periodic adjustment of their pensions systems, which link life expectancy to pension eligibility, a country’s economic performance with the valorisation of entitlements, balance of the system to valorisation of entitlements, and contribution rates to the indexation of benefits(1).

On 17 June at the meeting of the group of Commissioners responsible for pensions, Commissioner Olli Rehn stated that the current policy on fiscal consolidation would be insufficient without implementing budget reforms in the medium term, the most important of which related to pensions policies(2).

In this context, Commissioner Rehn stated that the estimates justifying and legitimising the prolongation of people’s working lives, as recommended by the Commission in the green paper on pensions systems, might be revised upwards in respect of the automatic adjustment mechanisms.

What is the Commission’s proposal on this matter, and how does it intend to involve the European Parliament, right from the outset, in the discussions on the reform of pensions systems?
