• Finland retirement age set to rise in 2019

    THE FINNISH CENTRE FOR PENSIONS has confirmed that the earliest retirement age for Finnish workers will be raised by three months in 2019. The upper age limit for retirement will not be affected.

    The increase was previously approved in 2017 as part of a wide-ranging package of pensions reforms passed in the Finnish Parliament. The increase only applies to the earliest retirement age possible, which will increase by three months, meaning that the new minimum retirement age will be 63 years and 6 months exactly.
