1990 to 2008

National data for the Pension Satellite Account are now available on request. Stock data are available from 1990 to 2008. Data of flows between the annual positions as well as the impact of revaluation cover the period 1990 to 2007.

These accounts fully articulate the wealth position of various categories of pensions at the beginning of each year (the stock); the inflows of contributions and income earned into these different plans; the withdrawals; and the revaluation of pension assets during the year to arrive at the wealth position at the end of each year. These data are provided separately for three major categories of retirement schemes: government social security plans, employer-sponsored plans, and individual retirement savings plans.
