This chapter examines the arguments for and against the reform of public service occupational pension schemes. It notes that various journalist, politicians and employer's organisations have been highly vocal in designating these as ‘unaffordable’ and ‘unfair’, contrasting them with apparently less generous schemes in the private sector. It explains and analyses arguments presenting complex debates in a clear and concise way and concludes that a holistic approach is required for pensions, including occupational pensions, state pensions and personal savings, rather than the fragmented and piecemeal changes that have characterized previous policy.

Keywords:   public service occupational pension schemes, journalist, politicians, employer's organisations, holistic approach, state pensions, personal savings
