Public defense of doctoral thesis: Pensioners’ income in retirement remains reasonable

The Finnish pension policy objectives have been mainly successful. Pensioners’ economic well-being does not drop dramatically at retirement, and the income of low-income people even improves slightly. After retirement, incomes remain fairly stable. However, for some retirees, poverty is long-lasting. This is evident in a doctoral dissertation by Juha Rantala for the Universit of Turku. The research is based on longitudinal register data.
