The worker at the age of 60 or 70 and some politicians who can worker until their eighties, the age up to 60 years are the age for the worker to pension from their work because the old ones should have problem in health and the decrease of performance. The worker of the age of 80 mostly work as politicion that enjoying power well, because they are not need to work harder, there are a lot of labor and guardian that can help their work, some politicians used their glory to handle their job without work. The old ones should not be encouraged to remain in paid employment.
For an extended period, state and local policymakers and labor unions ignored as the growing public pension obligations became an increasingly fiscal burden. The pension problem was enormous and associated with irresponsible financial practices connected to defined benefit pension plans (Thompson, 1980). Following this, the state of California and its local government have a problem of unfunded public pension liabilities that was estimated to be around $583 billion. Because of this, as Lu and Otto (2003) claim, several cities in the state have had a difficult duty of balancing budgets in a balanced way to the public employees and taxpayers, while continuing to provide public services to the
The first step is to separate what one believes from that one knows, and to separate what is from what must be. (Hinchey, 5) By doing this, one is able to begin to deconstruct the assumptions about the system in which we operate, which allows the individual to see the system as custom instead of irrefutable law. The next step in critical theory is
On August 17, 2006 the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (the Act) was signed into law. The Pension Protection Act ("PPA") [P.L. 109-280] originated as a single-employer defined benefit pension funding reform bill to strengthen the DB pension system. However, it is best known for the number of provisions to enhance 401(k) and 403(k) plans, especially the auto enrollment feature. Among other noteworthy provisions are those intended to remove legal obstacles to, and create new incentives for, automatic enrollment 401(k) and 403(b) plans. It represents one of the most comprehensive pension reform legislation since ERISA was enacted in 1974. The Act has lead to many companies changing the way their plans are designed and administered, amend plan documents, increase plan funding, and make additional plan disclosures in regulatory filings and to plan participants. The Act made many sweeping changes but for the sake of brevity, only the automatic enrollment plan made by employers on the behalf of its employees is addressed in this report as to the rationale behind the passage of the PPA. Even though the provisions generally apply both to 401(k) and 403(b) plans, for explanatory purposes all references will refer only to 401(k) plans.
4 Statistics Canada has utilized a computer model for the purpose of gaining retirement readiness information from households. This model calculates the net replacement ratio, which is further compared with disposable income once the person has reached retirement, as well as preretirement. The replacement ratios for each household 's income is broken down, with a 75% rate being considered tolerable and low. The ideal rate, however, is above at least 95%. The small percentage of Canadians who have a readiness score that is under 75% are generally employees with a spotty employment record, or those who have not yet lived in Canada long enough for a full Old Age Security (OAS) and Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) benefit. Therefore, increasing the overall amount of household savings is going to do a lot more damage than good. This is because having savings now reduces all disposable income for the years that are spent working, while additional income for retirement that is generated will reduce the future GIS entitlement. In fact, the
The Central States Pension Fund is faced a serious problem, because of the financial crisis, they can not pay for the retirees pension as much as in the past, which means the Fund don't have enough money to pay all of it. There are two choice they can make: One, if the Fund continues to pay for retirement pension at current rate, the project of company will out of money and end in 2025. And if this happen, the Fund would not be able to pay the pension for retirees and that would impact 407,000 retirees. The another one choice is the Fund cuts approximately 23% pension, that would have 50% percent of chance can let the company remain operation for 30 years. Fortunately, that would not influence the future retirees' pension, but would have a negatively impact of current retirees.
When regarding the enlarged population of contribution payers, the expected increase in contribution rates will be smaller as well with corresponding estimates of 1.85% in 2025 compared to 2.33% in the status quo scenario. In addition, Lauterbach, Luengen, Stollenwerk, Gerber, and Klever-Deichert (2005) suggest further to include people suffering from dementia and to raise benefits for home care (level I to e704 and level II to e1, 100). In this case, contribution rates of the universal at rate contribution system would have amounted to 1.88% in 2006 and will rise to 2% in
According to Ashley Crossman, “Critical theory is a social theory oriented toward critiquing and changing society as a whole, in contrast to traditional theory oriented only to understanding or explaining it (Crossman, 2017).” Critical theories objective is to get to the root of social life and expose the norms that prevents us from a complete understanding of how the world operates (Crossman, 2017). The theory was developed by sociologist at The Frankfort School in Germany, and it emerged
The data were extracted from the national longitudinal survey, Health and Retirement Study (HRS), which was started from 1992 by studying the population of age range 51-61 and their spouses through re-interviews every two years. Later, the study population was extended to the population above 51 years, resulting to 11 waves at present which was collected in RAND HRS file. The purpose of the health and retirement study was to serve as an affluent resource for the information related health, social well-being and economics of the middle aged population who were followed over the years. Furthermore, HRS included stratified multistage area probability which incorporates stratification, clustering and differential selection probabilities. HRS used mixed-mode for data collection: telephone and in-person interviews. The sample size of HRS for

Critical theory, on the other hand, as propounded by Robert Cox is a rejoinder to Neo-realism. According to Mark Rupert, Neo-Realism “only describes patterns in the operation of power among States without inquiring as to the social relations through which that power is produced.” Critical theory assumes that power is not given in the form of accumulated material capabilities; in fact, it is a product of social processes. Robert Cox adopted a method of “historical structures” in which “state power ceases to be sole explanatory factor and becomes part of what is to be explained”.
Critical theory is an idea that speaks to the individual desire for achieving success as defined by the individual and not the society. It lends itself more to finding out why there are paradoxes in society.
Table 1 above shows that under the basic scenario, the low income earner has the lowest pension fund value at retirement and will receive a low annuity income of £7576.23 compared to the middle and high income earners. However when determining the adequacy of their respective retirement incomes, the state single tier pension fund is added to each individual annuity quote before a replacement ratio is obtained. A low income earner has a replacement rate of 90%, largely above the minimum target set by the government and the Pension Commission Benchmark of 45% and 80% respectively. An average income earner has a
Modern governments promise old age security, which ensures that their citizens can fend for themselves during old age. The approaches, however, may vary from society to society. In some like The United Kingdom and Canada, government pensions are distributed to the elderly. In some others such as Singapore, the people are compelled to provide in advance for their old age dependency. Some societies have laws in place to enforce children to take care of elderly parents. For example, in Singapore, elderly parents may file in to the court if their children do not provide for them. However, there are various financial concerns about these methods. In the case of government pensions, the heavy spending of public fund on the old aged may take a toll on other areas of the nation’s development. Thus a method that works in a society may not work in another and sometimes, multiple approaches have to be taken.
A study was done low tax countries with high tax countries, which will help us in the case of retire states comparing them to the lower taxes countries, as it will be worse of course. In the study the used some indicators to represent the social and some the economic which is similar to our case (the mentality and economy):
