Pension watch is a comprehensive online resource on non-contributory (social) pensions.
Four out of five older people worldwide have no access to a pension. Social pensions are non-contributory cash transfers paid regularly to older people. They are widely acknowledged to be one of the most effective social protection tools to reduce old age poverty and invest in human capital development. They can help older people live with dignity and support the realization of the human right to an adequate standard of living.
