Example text

Coverage by private pension plans is now at about 50% and has remained at this level for the past decade. Thus, without further extensions of coverage, half of all workers and their dependents will not benefit from federal regulation of 10 private pension plan provisions. In addition, the present law, by allowing retirees to choose not to receive a joint and survivor's benefit, assumes that the worker covered by such a plan will make the most appropriate decision considering the current and future needs of his or her family.

Some argue that government should not encourage marriage over nonmarriage and that it should be neutral with respect to fertility. Further, the individualist will point out that some family-based benefits, while offering economic security to a woman, will discourage her from working. This can be said of community-property law. It can also be said of the features of OASI that tie a spouse's benefit to her husband's work record and ignore her payroll tax contributions. ) Thus, there is a conflict between incentives to encourage family security on the one hand, and incentives to encourage women to adopt a full-time, full-life career in the labor force.

Depending on how the social insurance part of OASI is revised, special provisions might be needed in a NIT for children of retired, disabled, and deceased workers. All of the remedies for the problems we have discussed are motivated in part by a preference for individualistic as opposed to familistic taxtransfer devices. They would move us further away from relatives' responsibility for meeting income needs of family members.
