Social Security Programs Around the World

The Social Security Administration maintains an international section that examines social security/pension programs of every country. Every six months, in cooperation with the International Social Security Administration, one of four regional comprehensive reports is issued that delves into the workings of overseas programs. The four areas are: Europe, Asia and the Pacific, Africa, and The Americas. In addition, monthly updates focus on more recent developments in foreign countries; the March 2015 issue deals with pension/early retirement/retirement/pension financing in the Slovak Repubic, Australia, and Bolivia. The country index supplies access to previous reports, some going back to 1950. With the economic crisis having as one of its foci pensions, you can readily access what each country has in the way of social security programs/protections/provisions for both public and private sector workers.
