Italy -Reform of pension legislation planned -September 21, 2015

The government is working on a change to pension laws that would let women retire three years early, at 62-63, while taking a 10% pension cut. The change would take effect in 2016. The government has promised to overhaul an unpopular 2011 pension law, framed by then labour minister Elsa Fornero, that raised the pension age to 66 for both men and women. The government is also looking at a plan to offer men early retirement. A special problem is the problem of the 'esodati' (exiled ones) - people who were left without pay or a pension after leaving jobs, as under the old rules, they were eligible to retire.
