Abstract

Until 2006 the Netherlands, like many other European countries, had a very strong “early retirement culture”. But this is history now. Early exit routes have been closed. On top of that State Pension Age will increase to 67. Employees and employers need to change their perspectives on retirement in response to pension reforms that have taken place in quick succession. New NIDI research shows how older workers are reacting to the changing pension landscape: many feel they have been taken by surprise and there is a great deal of anger. For a large group of older workers, retiring later is not as easy as it may seem.
