Poland - Reverse planned of increased pension age - December 31, 2015

The government has launched the work on a bill submitted to reverse retirement reforms carried out in 2012 by the former Civic Platform (PO) government. The former government had argued that raising the retirement age was inescapable as the country is facing a demographic crisis, with the number of pensioners set to rise in proportion to people of working age. The draft bill brings the retirement age back to 65 years of age for men and 60 for women, down from the 67 for both sexes at present. However, the pensions may be up to 30% lower; with differences stretching from 10% to a maximum of 30% for women.
