This. paper discusses parametric reform options to control losses generated by a publicly managed pay-as-you-go (PAYG) pension system under alternative deficit reduction (reform) strategies involving changes in contribution and replacement rates and statutory retirement ages. Two different problems corresponding to different pension reform strategies are considered using computational techniques. The techniques are illustrated through exercises employing data for the financially troubled pension system in Turkey. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
