80k people to take advantage of lower retirement age in Q4 – NBP

As many as 80k people will retire in Q4 due to the recently lowered retirement age, deputy director at Poland’s Central Bank (NBP) Jacek Kotłowski said. “The number of people who will receive benefits in Q4 is slightly over 200,000 people, but we will lose about 80,000. The rest will either take benefits and continue to work, or will not take them at all, due to its low value,” he said.

Back in December last year, Poland lowered the retirement age to 60 for women and 65 for men, from the previous 67 for both sexes.
