EU Sources - The income of retired workers in arduous jobs - October 31, 2016

In a synthesis report commissioned by DG EMPL of the European Commission on the situation of workers in arduous jobs, one chapter is dedicated to the income, notably once they retire. The report is based on country reports and looks after the actual retirement pathway which workers in arduous and hazardous jobs follow in the scrutinised countries. It identifies the national policy measures, and the number of workers that have access to them. Also described are the main characteristics of the retirement pattern, especially the effective retirement age, as compared with that of ordinary workers. The report provides information on the level of income with a focus on pension benefits, comparing the benefits (through special schemes, special rules of early and/or disability benefits) with the pension benefits provided for ordinary workers.
