Longevity policy : facing up to longevity issues affecting social security, pensions, and older workers by John A Turner( )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John A. Turner makes the case that longevity policy should be recognized as a distinct area - as we do now for climate change. Instead of treating issues relating to older age, Social Security, and pensions separately, he says, we need to recognize the interrelationships among these areas and adopt a unified approach toward policy. Doing so, Turner argues, would make for a more effective and efficient policymaking

This document's seven papers examine compensation and employment risk in the United States and Canada. "Introduction" (John A. Turner) discusses compensation risk bearing in labor markets. "Wage and Job Risk for Workers" (John A. Turner) explores the problems of macroeconomic instability, job turnover, job and earnings instability, and unemployment and considers why job insecurity has increased. "Risk in Employment Arrangements" (Sophie M. Korczyk) examines the economic risks inherent in nonstandard employment arrangements, policy issues, and available options. "Health and Coverage at Risk" (Robert B. Friedland, Laura Summer, Sophie M. Korczyk, and Douglas E. Hyatt) describes the U.S. and Canadian health systems and discusses risks associated with both. "Risk Sharing through Social Security Retirement Income Systems" (John A. Turner) addresses risk bearing in retirement income systems and compares risk sharing through social security. "Risk Bearing in Individual and Occupational Pension Plans" (James E. Pesando, John A. Turner) reviews individual and occupational pension plans in Canada, tax treatment of pensions in both countries, and the risk-bearing aspects of both countries' occupational pension systems. "Risk Shifting in Workers' Compensation" (Douglas E. Hyatt) describes workers' compensation and the current climate in workers' compensation. Seventeen tables/figures are included. All chapters contain substantial bibliographies. (Mn)
Sustaining social security in an era of population aging by John A Turner( )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social Security currently lacks the financing to pay for benefits already promised and the Congressional Budget Office projects that insolvency will occur in 2031. While many proposals for fixing the system have been floated, most are little more than bandages that stem the bleeding but fail to address the underlying malady. As John A. Turner points out in this book, "[T]he fundamental problem is that the current demographic era where the old-age dependency ratio (the ratio of Social Security beneficiaries to covered workers) is increasing, the Social Security benefit formula causes benefits to grow faster than the tax revenues that finance them." While seemingly a problem of demographics (which can't be fixed), Turner argues that the solution to the long-term health of Social Security lies in politically-acceptable periodic reforms of the formula used to determine benefits. Specifically, he endorses a set of reforms that address increased life expectancy, the growing relationship between income and life expectancy, the decline in the physical demands of jobs, the rise in income inequality, and the increasing poverty seen among the older population. --

Pension policy for a mobile labor force by John A Turner( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes what happens to the pension benefits of workers who quit or are laid off jobs. The first chapter reviews the connection between job mobility and pension portability. Chapter 2 portrays a labor market undergoing changes that often result in reductions in retirement benefits. Chapter 3 describes job change further by examining data on workers by industry and the particular impact of mobility on women's pension benefits. Chapter 4 investigates size of consequent losses. Chapter 5 examines receipt and subsequent use of preretirement lump sum distributions. Chapter 6 discusses issues concerning the pension benefits of laid-off workers. Chapter 7 describes pension plan features that already reduce portability losses. Chapter 8 debates the pros and cons of pension portability reform in five areas: equity, tax and budget policy, regulation, economic effects, and financial responsibility. Chapter 9 describes and evaluates policy options designed to reduce portability losses. Chapter 10 examines how policies mandating portability would affect employers and workers and surveys studies relating pensions and job change. Chapter 11 examines the role of layoffs in portability losses. Chapter 12 discusses policies toward pension portability in Canada, Japan, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Chapter 13 concludes the book with a selective list of policies that would reduce the pension benefit losses of job changers. (Appendixes include an index.) (Contains 164 references.) (YLB)
