Norway -Report on early retirement -May 23, 2013

The research institute FAFO published a paper about the early retirement systems, age retirement limits and pension schemes for occupations that have a lower age limit than standard age limit in the occupational pension system. The study looks at schemes either based on legislation or on collective agreements. The overall pension system has undergone several changes over the past seven years. It is expected that the traditional define benefit schemes will be transformed to new types of (hybrid) pension systems.
