Rentenversicherung in Singapur : der Central Provident Fund

The retirement security system within the Singapore Central Provident Fund

  • Considering the problems of retirement security systems leads one to look beyond the border in order to get a glimpse of the way things work in other societies.

The rise of the city-state of Singapore has been accompanied by the development of a comprehensive social security system within the framework of the Central Provident Fund (CPF). The CPF is based on a symbiosis of Western social concepts and Eastern pragmatism. The article gives an insight into the development of this system, and the way it works underpresent political and economic conditions.
