Slovenia Proposes to Raise Retirement Age to 67

According to an article by Marja Novak, Slovenia’s labor ministry proposed raising the retirement age to 67 from 59, in line with a suggestion from the International Monetary Fund. However, this was qualified later;
Prime Minister Miro Cerar told reporters later on Wednesday that government had not yet decided when it will prepare a new pension law and pointed out that a previous pension reform, enforced at the start of 2013, was still ongoing.

In line with the 2013 pension reform the retirement age will be gradually raised to 65 by 2019.
