2 Challenging Statutory Pensions Reforms in an Aging Europe 15 On the other hand, the current sustainability of pensions can be viewed in terms of their impact on broader policy and economic objectives. All pension schemes, regardless of the financing mechanism they use (funding or PAYG) transfer a share of the current output of the real economy from the active to the retired. A less-favourable balance between the active and the retired will therefore represent a major challenge to any pension system.

7 2 Challenging Statutory Pensions Reforms in an Aging Europe 13 sector employees’ pensions sometimes do not constitute a well-identified pension scheme but, instead, disbursements for pensions appear directly as expenditure in the government budget. On the other hand, some predominantly PAYG pension schemes have statutory requirements for partial pre-funding and, in view of the increasing pension expenditure, many governments have started to collect reserve funds for their public pension schemes.

Enhancing the quality of funded pension schemes, which in many countries, will play an increasingly important role in providing adequate pensions (European Commission 2003). The future adequacy and sustainability of pensions could be assessed using theoretical replacement rates,12 given that they may show how changes in pension rules can affect pension levels in the future. A look at the link between theoretical replacement rates and the evolution of pension expenditure shows that developments in pension promises can involve a heavy future cost in the light of a society with low fertility rates,13 if labour market patterns remain constant.
