The third pillar should be voluntary, privately managed but regulated by the state, FFI (but without completely excluding other methods), with defined contributions paid by the insured or the employer or both and should supplement the other two pillars by providing nondefined supplementary pensions. An autonomous organization with tripartite representation (workers, employers, and government) should oversee, regulate, and in general coordinate the administration of the three pillars. In contrast to the WB view, the ILO stresses the principles of universality, solidarity, and equity.
