The Netherlands to raise retirement age to 67 years and 3 months
Dutch government raising state pension age by 3 months
The Dutch government continues to raise the age of retirement in order to accommodate for the rising life expectancy of 65-year-olds. According to data from Statistics Netherlands (CBS), by 2028, a 65-year-old in the Netherlands will have an average life expectancy of 21,05 years.
Up until 2013, the state pension age in the Netherlands was 65, but the government has been gradually increasing it over the past several years in order to offset the effects of an ageing population. In 2024, the pension age will increase from 66 years and seven months to 67.
