Pensions modelling and development
The Pensions Policy Institute currently uses a suite of economic models, covering both state and private pensions, which analysts use to:
- look at the effects of different pension options on particular kinds of people;
- examine the effects of pension changes on the distribution of means-tested and other incomes; and
- estimate the overall cost of government spending on pensions.
The development of these models was funded by an earlier Nuffield Foundation grant and we have now awarded PPI a new two-year grant to redevelop and extend its modelling suite. This will allow better modelling of the new pensions policy landscape and increase the range of analysis that PPI will be able to research in the future.
The updated modelling suite will be more robust, credible, flexible and versatile and will be used by PPI and other organisations to inform the wider policy debate surrounding pensinos and retirement income.
