Les effets négatifs de la contributivité sur la retraite des femmes : Analyse et alternatives

Abstract : In France, retirement pensions of women are rising relative to men because of the increasing participation of women in paid employment. However, application of the priniciple of contributivity, i.e. a proportional link between the total pension paid and the total of contributions paid in during the working life, has been reinforced since 1993. Given that this measure reduces pension entitlements, especially for women, who on average receive lower salaries than men and have shorter careers, the authors examine the different measures that could increase women’s pensions. Should measures relating to widows’ pensions or those that take into account career breaks for parenting be improved? Should the level of the minimum pension be set higher or should there be a universal pension? Or finally, should the principle of contributivity itself be thrown into question by linking pensions to the highest wages received over the working life as was the case during half a century after the Second World War?
