Pension provision varies significantly across Europe, with both the types and structures of pensions available changing considerably from country to country. According to documentation produced by the European Union in January 2008, nearly 60% of supplementary schemes surveyed in Germany could be described as having features consistent with defined benefit provision, whereas for Poland the figure is only 10%.

do the regulatory and taxation requirements that apply to pensions.
