The Actuaries Institute has published a discussion paper which examines a range of options for overhauling Australia’s retirement income system. The authors argue amongst other things that the federal government should consider measures such as including the family home in the pension assets test, the abolition part-pensions and the introduction of death duties. The paper also warns that Australia’s ageing population will put the federal Budget under growing pressure unless action is taken. The report was written by David Knox, Anthony Asher and Michael Rice.
