Rethinking social security coordination: From tinkering to radical reform

Rethinking social security coordination: From tinkering to radical reform

June 19, 2018

Policy Analysis

The rules of social security coordination, which apply to a wide range of social benefits, including sickness and disability, maternity/paternity, old-age, unemployment, and family benefits, are highly complex and have attracted considerable political controversy and public anxiety.

This paper of work package 12 assesses the proposed reforms against the social security system more broadly. It outlines how the system works, analyses the main challenges and tensions at the heart of the social security system, evaluates the proposed reforms against other possible options, and makes a set of recommendations.
