Self-employed people work longer than employees

Raising the state pension age means that people will continue to work for longer

People work longer and retire later. In addition, they have started to focus much more on the age at which they receive AOW. This and more is apparent from research by the Research Center for Education and the Labor Market (ROA) of Maastricht University. The ROA has been commissioned by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment to investigate the facts and trends associated with the increase in the state pension age. The results of the survey have been presented to the members of the Tweede Kamer and are used by the minister to evaluate the policy process in this regard.
