Abstract

Few residents of developing countries have access to pensions in old age. Well-intentioned reformers have concentrated on privatisation of public pensions and creation of individual accounts, but this does nothing to expand coverage. It is possible for a non-contributory, flat pension to automatically protect an entire population, in a way that contributory, earnings-related pensions never can. This paper explores the feasibility of introducing such a "citizen's pension" in low-income countries.
