EIOPA publishes statistical database for pensions

The European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) published today the statistical database for occupational pensions in the European Economic Area (EEA). This publication represents an important financial stability data source allowing EIOPA to better monitor developments on the market and identify at an early stage trends, potential risks and vulnerabilities.
 
The database includes statistics from 2004 to 2013. It covers mainly institutions for occupation retirement provision (IORPs) and in some cases “1st Pillar bis” occupational funds.
Currently 21 EEA jurisdictions have provided information for this database. In other countries the development of IORPs is in the starting phase.
 
EIOPA is going to complete and update the database on a yearly basis.

Dictionary

The second pillar of Polish pension system
The mandatory capital part of the pension system, including open pension funds, which are managed by private operators - general pension societies. Similar to the first pillar - the contributions to the second pillar are mandatory (for anyone born after 31 December 1948), but it is possible to choose another fund among those operating on the market. It is also possible to change a fund into another one. An important difference, compared to the first pillar, is that the resources collected in this pillar are invested and may be inherited. The operation of pension funds is subject to detailed provisions and state supervision. The second pillar receives 7,3% of the basic contribution.
