Retirement ages around the world

U.S. News's Emily Brandon has a nice story looking at pension retirement ages in different countries and pressures to increase them. A good read.

Nice "story" if one is interested in reading fiction. She wrote:

"Between 1949 and 2010, pension ages were constant for both men and women in only six countries: Finland, Iceland, Mexico, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom".

I have not fact checked the entire article, but I happen to know that in 2009 the Netherlands raised the retirement age for its social security program (AOW) to 66 (effective 2020) and 67 (effective 2025), respectively from the current retirement age of 65;
