Complementary and Private Pensions throughout the World 2008 (CPPTW 2008) constitutes an important source of information on old‐age pension provision around the world. It is complementary (and in some cases supplementary) to the information on social
security schemes provided in Social Security Programs Throughout the World (SSPTW). SSPTW is the result of the cooperative efforts of the International Social Security Association (ISSA) and the US Social Security Administration. When read together,
CPPTW 2008 and SSPTW provide detailed information on countries' social security and complementary systems of retirement income provision.
