Your promises will not help today's pensioners
"Your promises will not help today's pensioners,"

"Debater: So solve you the problem with the pension funding"

"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."

"the DEBATE. There was plenty of pensioners in this year's marches, but it was silent about pensions when the government representatives took the floor in his First of may speech. The little that was said was the future retirees with promises of higher pensions for those who worked a full working life and that the accumulated pension for regular employees shall be at least 70 per cent of the final salary. Thus, a replay of the message in last year's election campaign. "

"But today's pensioners are not helped by these proposals. Increased contributions to the pension scheme will be a success only if many years and the 70% target will not be met so long as the current pension system remains. "

"Not in the 73-punktöverenskommelsen (S, L, C, MP) are a few new and specific proposals on pensions. However, the general talk that it will be good to get old in Sweden (no contrast?) and the economic conditions for all pensioners should be improved – with an unknown amount. But no point that takes up the fundamental problems with the current pension system should be addressed. Despite the fact that samarbetspartierna very well would be able to make sharp decisions in retirement. "

"When the scheme was launched just over twenty years ago, the aim was that it would be sustainable over time. It would give as high a pension as the previous system with ATP and basic pension had made, 60 to 65 per cent of previous salary. Straight tubes between salary and pension were the key ingredients. But for various reasons it has not been the case and, in particular, it will not be so if no radical measures are taken. For that in the near future be able to improve the gradually deteriorating public pensions have pension system financing is strengthened. And there is money that can solve the problem."

"for Example, 19 billion from employer contributions that are currently regarded as a tax, and thus goes straight into the treasury. It is the equivalent of more than well the of Göran Persson previously proposed increase of 15 billion from the employer's contribution. Transfer these money to the pension scheme! "

"And to finance the premiepensionerna reduced fee to income-based pensions from 18.5 per cent to 16 per cent. Use the 2.5 percentage points to the improved pensions for all retirees and dismantling of the Swedish premium pension system! It would provide space for an increase of current pensions by about 15 per cent. "

"Finally. The politicians seem to have forgotten that there is a AP-a fund whose purpose is to serve as a buffer against temporary fluctuations in the pension system. And as in the day would be enough to four years inkomstpensioner, approximately 1 400 billion, but the current arrangements prevent the full utilisation of the. "

"If the confidence in the current pension system should be able to be restored, and deliver the pensions to live on, required a comprehensive review of the pension system. The current priority of the system's financial stability in front of the safe and adequate pensions need to be rethought. For it is a wicked thought to all the risks of the current pension system shall be passed on to the pensioners. The results so far of concern. For example, Sweden now has the highest proportion of pensioners at risk of poverty in the Nordic countries. Ten years ago we had the lowest proportion. If nothing is done, the group becomes considerably larger in the future. "
