Bulgaria -Pension age the same for women and men after 2020 -July 12, 2012

As part of the new and controversial pension package, the retirement age for women will be increased to the same level as men’s after 2020. The current retirement age is 63 for men and 60 for women. The male retirement age will be raised to 65 by 2017, the female age to 63 by 2020 and 65 thereafter. As part of the pension reform, the retirement age will be raised by 4 months on 1 January of every year until the targets are reached. Bulgaria has the largest ageing population in the European Union and no solution in sight.
