According to Lin, the DPP has established a task force charged with reviewing retirement benefits for government retirees and other problematic and debt-laden social insurance pension systems, such as the Labor Insurance Fund, to facilitate a resolution on the highly publicized issues.

DPP headquarters is to call a meeting tomorrow with its legislative caucus to deliberate on several hot-button issues, with a discussion on the feasibility of setting up a legislative special committee and holding state-affairs conferences to address the pension matter being given top priority.
