  • Five potential pension system options
  • The notional defined contribution (NDC) system
  • The first and the second pillar
  • 'Zero pillar', i.e. a universal basic pension
In December 2009 the Pension and Old Age Round Table published its Report on its activities between 2007-2009. The Round Table was set up early 2007 by the Government of Hungary, and its main objective was to compile the options for the pension system in Hungary in the coming decades, analyse them and undertake an economic and social impact study. At the conference on March 25, 2010, the main findings of the Report will be presented, the Report is available at www.magyarorszagholnap.hu (English language version is under preparation and will be posted in February). We are planning to invite international pension experts who will review the findings at the conference.

Changes effected recently (abolishing the pension for the 13th month, restarting the increase of retirement age, modification of the indexation rules) created a virtual financial equilibrium until 2050. This equilibrium is virtual, because the persistence of the current situation for the long term is hardly imaginable. Currently in a very bad employment field, persons who are too few compared to the entire population pay high amounts of contribution; the system also contains some nontransparent, untraceable redistribution; meanwhile the number or proportion of persons precluded from the system or of those who reach old age without obtaining pension eligibility also make us concerned. As long as the system is exposed to the politics to the extent experienced today, it may happen that the lobby power of various social groups would overturn the equilibrium earlier than predicted by simple forecasts. The real benefit brought by the changes of parameters is that we may come up for a quick breath of air and thus we have some chances to think over the ideas described in the Report of the Round Table, hold discussions, further investigate important details, create and fine-tune models and on the basis of all that make decisions.

The Round Table has performed the impact study of five potential pension system options. One of these would introduce the so-called point scheme into the social security system. Another approach would complete this with the introduction of a “zero pillar", i.e. a universal basic pension that would be payable to anybody irrespective of contribution payment (coupled with the maintenance of the occupational pensions - decreased proportionally). The notional defined contribution (NDC) system was also analysed, which would install a strict automatism into the logics of the social security pillar and would allow the permanent payment of those pension benefits only that are financially covered. Fourthly we investigated an option that on the long run exclusively contains a funded (second) pillar and gradually eliminates the pay-as-you-go element by implementing its NDC based reform and terminating its operation step by step. Finally we analysed the option that contains basic pension exclusively on the long run whilst the mandatory occupational pension elements (the first and the second pillar) cease to exist.
