    In Germany, in contrast, salary-conversion plans were made mandatory on all employers, regardless of their other pension offerings, because the program's goal was to introduce defined contribution plans and ease the transition to lower Social Security replacement rates, rather than to target workers with no pension coverage. The subject matter of the book is social security pensions. This is an extraordinarily vast topic. Broadly it is taken here to mean those pension schemes (including invalidity and survivors', as well as retirement, benefits) which require mandatory participation by workers.   With talk of Social Security's uncertain future rampant in the media, soon-to-be-retirees may fear there will be nothing left for them. "That's a lot of fear-mongering," says Peter Mallouk.
