An ILC Global Alliance Circular on retirement age reform.
This paper, edited by the International Longevity Centre UK (ILC-UK), presents country-specific insights from the different members of the International Longevity Centre Global Alliance (ILC Global alliance)on the retirement age reform process that has been included in the political agenda by governments around the world.
The different briefs from the ILC Global Alliance members were based on the following questions:
*What are the rules on eligibility age for state pensions in your country?
*Are there different rules for men and women?
*Are there different rules for different aspects of the state pension?
*Is there a ‘retirement age’ at which employers can legally retire their staff, and is this linked to the eligibility age for state pensions?
*Does the state also set retirement ages for public sector pension schemes?
*Are any of these rules undergoing reform, and how have policy-makers justified reform?
*What has public reaction been to reform proposals?
