Social Security Incentives in Belgium: An Analysis of Four Decades of Change

Anne-Lore Fraikin, Alain Jousten, Mathieu Lefebvre

NBER Working Paper No. 25375
Issued in December 2018
NBER Program(s):Public Economics

The paper traces labor market reforms over the last four decades. It provides estimates of retirement incentives for a selected set of typical worker profiles across time and socioeconomic groups and links these series to the labor market performance in Belgium. The results show that the numerous retirement and social security program reforms have had a marked impact on incentives at the micro level. At the aggregate level, results are less clear-cut given the extreme diversity of programs and features in the Belgian institutional context.
