The economic incentives to postpone retirement may impact when people plan to retire on an earnings-related pension only if people are familiar with the incentives. In this study, we review how much people who approach their retirement age know about the incentives of the pension system, how effective the incentives are and what they mean in terms of people’s retirement intentions.
