Get Ready to Work Longer Before You Can Retire

Working Longer

The average retirement age will rise about two years over the next four decades among members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, thanks to efforts in past years to shore up state-funded pension programs. The greatest projected jump will be in countries such as Denmark, Italy and the Netherlands, where the retirement age is now linked to life expectancy. Only five members -- including France -- of the OECD’s 35 will have standard retirement ages below 65 by 2060.
