1 12 Comparison of Internal Rates of Return in a Social Security System over Time, United States, 1960 and 2005 Pension System Reforms in Chile and Mexico, offer a minimum pension guarantee to workers, such that, after a given period of contribution, a minimum pension will be provided by the government. Other systems, such as those in Malaysia and Singapore, provide a guaranteed minimum rate of return, which can be redistributive depending on the level. If the minimum rate of return is high, it obviously redistributes from the guarantor, usually the government, to pensioners, but without regard to the income level of the pensioner.

To the extent that these pensions reduce poverty and are being paid to individuals who have not contributed, poverty may temporarily increase. However, in the longer run, as contribution collections rise, the pension fund may be able to reduce the contribution rate, which would be an improvement for all workers. The government can then determine where to focus its poverty reduction efforts most effectively rather than paying out pensions only to individuals bold enough to present false documents to the authorities.

Related to this approach, but usually less progressive, are schemes offering separate replacement rates for different groups of workers, usually by crediting more years of service per year of contribution. In Serbia, for example, women are given 15 percent more years of service credit over and above their years of contribution. In other countries, this special credit is given to particular occupations such as teachers or miners. A third mechanism for explicit redistribution, more common than the second, is the front-loaded benefit formula, whereby the first 10– 15 years of service are awarded higher benefit rates than are subsequent years.
