An overview of the defined contributory pension scheme is carried out in section 2, while country-specific experiences with the defined contributory pension scheme is reviewed in section 3. Issues of public policy on the defined contributory pension scheme are explored in section 4. Finally, section 5 contains the concluding remarks of the paper
