In Search of Inclusion: Informal Sector Participation in a Voluntary, Defined Contribution Pension System

Published By: IGIDR on eSS | Published Date: October, 01 , 2013

This paper examines who contributes and who persists in contributing in a national, voluntary, defined contributory pension program, where the government provides the incentive of matching contributions of a minimum amount (USD 16). The paper uses proprietary data from a financial services firm where 12 percent of customers (37000 individuals) chose to participate in this program. [IGIDR Working Paper No. WP-2013-022].
