Learn more about Government Pensions

A government pension is a fund into which a sum of money is added during the period in which a person is employed by the government. When the government employee retires they are able to receive periodic payments from the fund in order to support themselves. As the birth rate continues to fall and the life expectancy rises governments worldwide are predicting funding shortfalls for pensioners. Some analysts say the shortage between what China's pension funds need to pay out and are taking in could rise to as high as $11 trillion over the next two decades. China is also raising the retirement age this year.  See recent government pensions news
