Finland -Negotiations on pension age -May 25, 2015

Proposal to gradually increase the current retirement age of 63 years to 65.

Pension negotiations regarding public service workers concluded with a proposal to gradually increase the current retirement age of 63 years to 65. This retirement age would apply to those born from 1955 onwards. If the proposal proceeds according to plan the reforms will come into force in 2017. The retirement age would rise gradually, by three months for each year from birth up until 65 years. When the retirement age of 65 years is reached by the cohort of retirees to whom this initial three month indexation applies, the plan is to continue to adjust the future minimum retirement age to reflect exponentially longer life expectancy.
