Singapore: Singaporeans Ready and Willing To Work Past 62

The findings of a retirement study, released at a forum organised by the Institute of Policy Studies, revealed that 41% of Singaporeans polled want the Government to increase the retirement age. Presenting a Singapore-focused look at HSBC's "Future of Retirement" survey, Dr Sarah Harper, director of the United Kingdom's Oxford Institute of Ageing, which conducted the survey, was quoted by Singapore Today as saying: "The message that is coming out of Singaporean people and the Singaporean employer is that we value older workers and we want to work longer."

The Institute has made available Dr. Harper's PowerPoint presentation.
