Other Acts P6_TA-PROV (2011)0058 (16/02/2011)

Type: Acts of the European Union: European Parliament resolution on adequate, sustainable and safe European pension systems

Authority: European Authorities - European Union: European Parliament

Date: 02/16/2011

Subject: The European Parliament stresses that pensions and pension systems are the responsibility of the Member States, but, recognising that Member States' economies are interdependent, it therefore calls on the EU and the Member States to properly coordinate their different pension policies and by using the Open Method of Coordination to guarantee the adequacy, safety and sustainability of pension systems. The Parliament therefore stresses that the EU should primarily enhance the comparability of pension schemes and promote the exchange of good practices; finally it is of the opinion that the Commission needs to make the necessary efforts to come up with a typology of pension systems in Member States as well as with a common set of definitions in order to make systems comparable.
