The only difference reserves make in such a case is that pensions are financed out of general taxation, rather than earmarked contributions, but the system is effectively pay-as-you-go.

Apart from this inevitable transfer, a pay-as-you-go pension scheme makes it easier for a government to surreptitiously make transfers in favor of current workers and pensioners at the expense of future ones.

Up until now the Rentenversicherung has basically offered a predefined level of benefits. For any given work biography, an individual’s benefit entitlements are a fixed percentage (about 70 percent for an average earner with 45 years in employment) of current average wages.
