This thesis comprises three chapters on the effects of pension policies. The thesis starts with a theoretical chapter on the social welfare effects of fully-funded pensions in a model with accidental bequests. The second chapter offers a quantitative assessment of retirement reforms designed to achieve fiscal sustainability in the face of population ageing. The third chapter is empirical and documents the loss of redistribution in Danish public pensions when accounting for inequality in longevity.
