The Pensions Committee carries out surveys in a number of areas. These surveys are updated from time to time, and the date of currency of each survey is indicated. Each survey is developed under the guidance of an editor, drawing together input from the delegates of each national actuarial association participating in the AAE. The material is reviewed by the Pensions Committee as a whole before publication. No charge is made for using this material, but users are requested to acknowledge the source.

The purpose is to provide data on which European policy-makers and other interested groups can rely in their considerations.

The surveys are somewhat inter-related and fall into groups as follows:

Benefit Provision

Funding and Security

Role of the Actuary
