The Retirement and Income Modelling Unit (RIM) continues the work of the Retirement Income Modelling Task Force that commenced operation in August 1992. In 1997 the RIM Task Force became the Retirement and Income Modelling Unit and joined the Commonwealth Treasury. The RIM Unit has expanded in scope, now undertaking a wider range of costing and modelling work for personal income and tax related issues. The Unit also played a key role in the projections for the Intergenerational Report.
The RIM Unit provides costings for retirement and personal incomes, distributional and hypothetical analysis, projections, briefings/ responses to issues and is involved in revenue estimate and tax expenditure calculations.
