From the Paper:

"The United States pension system has three tiers: elderly benefits (public), social insurance (public) and employer-sponsored pension plans and individual retirement savings plans and associated tax advantages (private). The pension system has two basic goals to ensure elderly persons a basic income (the anti-poverty objective) and to maintain a reasonable relationship between an individual's income before and during retirement (the income-replacement objective).
"The first tier of the US pension system includes the federal Old Age Security program for low- income and middle- income seniors, Guaranteed Income Supplement for low-income seniors and Spouse's Allowance for low-income widowed and married persons age 60-64. Five provinces and the 2 territories provide income supplements for their elderly poor. The income tax system provides a non- refundable tax credit for low-income and middle-income elderly taxpayers and a non-refundable pension income credit for all taxpayers with private pension income."
