About the survey
Pension systems in Europe are as diverse as the European Member States themselves, representing different pillars, providers and communication practices. Therefore, finding a standard way of communicating and informing about pensions is not an easy task. When it comes to communicating about pensions, it is certainly true that “one size does not fit all”.
This survey is the second step to systematically analyse the pension communication processes and foster best practice exchange between pension institutions and providers of all pillars in Europe. The survey entails the organisation of the pension communication process, the objectives of informing citizens, the content and presentation of information and ways or digital tools of communicating about pensions.
If you have not yet filled out the survey, you can do that here!
