Schwarz ension systems are designed to provide an income to those individuals who suffer a loss in earnings capacity through advanced age, the experience of a disability, or the death of a wage earner in the family.

As with minimum pensions, this design feature raises incentive issues; if people can earn reasonable pensions with only 10–15 years of contribution, why should they contribute throughout their careers? Nevertheless, countries continue to use this mechanism in the name of redistribution. Unintentional redistribution In addition to intentional redistribution, there are common design features within defined-benefit systems that have unintentional distributive consequences. One of the primary features is the averaging period for wages used to calculate the pensions.

Ideally, the age of retirement should rise as life expectancy and the ability of the older population to work increase, restricting pension benefits to those people who are considered too old to work. An average of 15 years in retirement should be the goal of the pension system. In most cases, raising the age of retirement may reduce the number of lower-income individuals who collect pensions since their life expectancy is generally lower. However, benefits would be available to the survivors, who may be more numerous among lower-income individuals than the survivors of higher-income individuals, and the difference in life expectancy within the covered population, which is, itself, often only the higher-income classes in the country, may not be that great.
