As governments raise pension-claiming ages in response to population ageing, it is vital to understand the distributional effects of these reforms. Todd Morris examines this question in the context of an Australian reform that gradually raised women’s pension age from 60 to 65. Using detailed longitudinal survey data from 2001 to 2015, Todd Morris finds that women responded by remaining on other transfer programs and delaying retirement, but the effects varied for different groups.
