As the global population experiences a notable shift towards older age demographics, there is a growing urgency to understand and address the economic implications of an aging society. This paper explores the multifaceted relationship between an aging population and pension systems, shedding light on the challenges and opportunities that arise in the realm of economic policy. The first section of the paper examines the demographic trends contributing to the aging of populations worldwide. Factors such as increased life expectancy, declining birth rates, and advancements in healthcare play pivotal roles in shaping the age structure of societies. By delving into these demographic shifts, we aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of the challenges associated with an aging population. The second section focuses on the economic consequences of aging, emphasizing the strain on pension systems. With a larger proportion of the population entering retirement, pension systems face unprecedented pressure. We analyze the financial sustainability of existing pension structures and explore potential reforms to ensure the adequacy and viability of pension systems in the face of demographic changes.
