Description:
In December 1982 the National Council for the Aged published a discussion document entitled, Retirement: A General Review. The document raised a number of important issues including that of flexible retirement. It pointed out that one of the remarkable aspects of retirement is the extent to which 65 became accepted as the normal age of retirement. This has never been satisfactorily explained. There are no economic, social, gerontological or other reasons for the selection of this particular age. The practice of compulsory retirement at a fixed age is now being questioned and the principle is gaining acceptance that people should be given the maximum opportunity to choose their time of retirement within reasoflable limits. In December 1982 the EEC issued a recommendation to member states on the principles of a Community policy with regard to retirement age.
