Well-paid men retire later
Well-paid men in Sweden are retiring later than women in lesser-paid jobs.
This is, at least, the case in the public sector, as shown by statistics from The National Government Employee Pensions Board. It concludes that retiring at the age of 65 is no longer a given in Sweden.
The statistics show a clear link between salary and retirement age. The majority of those who retired before 65 had a monthly salary of less than US$ 4,000 whilst those who retired later had a monthly salary of over US$ 6,400.
As it stands today in Sweden, you have the right to continue working until 67 years old, although the government recently commissioned an inquiry to see whether this should be changed to 69.
