List of topical issues

How well do citizens know the basics of the pension system, the pension benefits and how pensions are financed? What do people think about pensions in Finland and Sweden? These and other new facts will be presented at our online research seminar on 3 December.

At this research seminar, we will sound the pension knowledge of citizens in Finland and Sweden. We will look at pension knowledge both through subjective indicators that measure how much people think they know about pensions and objective indicators that measure how much people actually know about the details of the pension system.  The seminar also offers new information on trust and concerns relating to pensions. 

The seminar, arranged on Thursday 3 December at 10:30-12:00 (Finnish time, UCT+2) is in English.
