European pension law is a topic that does not always receive the attention it deserves. For many years, the European Union has made efforts to bring the benefits of the EU single market to the realm of occupational pensions with some remarkable successes. However, some aspects of the EU’s pension law and policy remain incomplete for a number of reasons. This book studies European (occupational) pension law from the perspective of a pension scheme member by looking at the prerogatives of the EU in the field of occupational pensions and the history of its involvement with the topic. It then assesses the results of those efforts from a pension scheme member’s point of view. It does this not just by examining legislation such as the IORP II Directive or the Supplementary Pension Rights Directive, but also Commission Communications, the legislative processes leading up to adopted legislation and failed attempts at legislation. Finally, it studies the recent PEPP Regulation – a personal pension product that could offer lessons for EU occupational pension law.
