1st March 2018: Today HelpAge International launches a refreshed version of its Pension Watch website.

The site now includes citizen-generated data in a section on voice and accountability. The idea is to provide an insight into older people’s real experiences of accessing social protection. Its social pensions database, which was first provided a decade ago, is also revamped with information on pension eligibility, coverage and adequacy.

The site holds information on schemes in over 110 countries. HelpAge International and other organisations around the globe use the data in advocacy and policy analysis, and it contributes to monitoring social protection coverage targets in the Sustainable Development Goals.
