The Society seeks to make an impartial contribution to public debate on social policy and public interest matters where an actuarial perspective can add value. In this context, the Society has decided to commission research as set out below.
Fiscal Incentives Research
The Society has decided to commission an analysis of the current regime of fiscal incentives for retirement savings in Ireland, along with a comparison with models adopted in other countries. The analysis will include consideration of the redistributive effects of various models. The analysis will also examine possible changes to the current regime.
The Society intends to publicise key findings from this analysis in order to inform debate and public policy decisions in this area. The Society will provide a copy of the analysis to the Irish Fiscal Policy Research Centre who will be providing funding for the above-mentioned analysis.
Further information on this research can be found in the Society’s Request for Proposal document.
