The study examines the possibility of connecting the pension system with the student-loan system. After a brief presentation of the purpose and characteristics of the systems and the main dilemmas and similarities that appear, the author describes a connected model that would leave both systems more efficient in many respects. Among the model's most attractive features are simplicity and transparency, and it offers incentives that mobilize all possible sources for the two main aims of financing study and providing security in old age. The author also obtains formally the pension-indexation rule required for the system to operate in equilibrium, while striving to make the concepts and vocabulary of pension and student-loan literature converge.
