Netherlands -Retirement age moves up -January 16, 2013

The average retirement age for employees rose further in 2013 to 63.9 years, i.e. 0.3 years higher than in 2012. In the period 2000-2006 the average retirement age for employees was 61 years. Since 2007, the average retirement age has risen annually due to the introduction in 2006 of legislation changes aimed at encouraging people to work longer. As a result, the proportion of people going into retirement prior to their 60th birthday declined from 28% in 2006 to 6% in 2013. The proportion of employees who retire between 60 and 65 has also dropped dramatically in recent years: from 70% in 2008 to 46% in 2013.
