Effective Retirement Age
The effective retirement age has risen clearly
In 2014, the average effective retirement age in the earnings-related pension scheme was 61.2 years. The effective retirement age rose by 0.3 years compared to the previous year, exceeding the forecasts. Changes in the effective retirement age are measured by the expected effective retirement age, which is based on pension contingencies in different age cohorts.
In 2014, the total number of new pensioners declined compared to the year before. Less than 19,000 persons retired on a disability pension, a decline of 8 per cent year-on-year. As in 2013, more than 50,000 persons retired on an old-age pension in 2014.
