Replacement rate

The replacement rate of public pensions is an indicator that measures the coverage of pensions to maintain purchasing power.

This indicator compares the last salary with the public pension to be received. It is expressed as the percentage of the salary that covers the public pension or the public pension plus private contributions.

The formula for calculating it consists of dividing the retirement pension by the last salary and multiplying it by 100.
