Here too Europe’s baby boomers will swell the ranks of those aged 80 and over, while the number of people under 55 years of age will be lower than it is today.

Average indexed earnings are then converted into beneﬁt entitlements at differing rates, decreasing from 90 to 15 percent as one moves from low to high wages. For an average earner with a full lifetime work record, beneﬁts are around 40 percent of current average wages in the ﬁrst year in retirement. The beneﬁt level decreases in later years, as pensions after the ﬁrst year of retirement are only indexed by consumer price inﬂation. In any case, public pensions in the United States leave substantial room for supplementary provision on an occupational or fully private basis in order to maintain earlier living standards during old age.
