Slovenia -Reforms approved -October 24, 2012

On 17 October the government approved three draft acts which are to serve as the basis for structural reforms that Slovenia will implement in order to overcome the crisis. One crucial part of the reform is the raising and equalising of the retirement age of men and women. Both men and women should be 65 years old in order to quality for an old-age pension. The proposed retirement age for early retirement for both genders is 60 years with 40 years of employment. In the meantime the parliamentary committee on Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Disabled examined the proposal for the budgets for the coming two years. It is planned to allocate more funds for the active employment policy, while new cuts in social transfers are not planned.
