IfM Publications How useful is the mandatory provision for founders?

The federal government plans to introduce a mandatory old-age provision for new self-employed people not yet insured in existing old-age provision systems. But how many founders would benefit from this mandatory requirement?

Dr Rosemarie Kay, Peter Kranzusch and Dr Stefan Schneck analyse this issue in their policy brief "The planned mandatory old-age provision system for new self-employed – how many will it affect?". They conclude that only a minority of founders fulfill even the conditions of a pension provision obligation.
