Pension reforms for Slovenia's aging population

Slovenia’s population is aging, and aging fast.

Last year the country’s voting population rejected a bill to raise the retirement age, dealing a blow to the government’s plans to control public debt.

The country’s actual retirement age is one of the lowest in Europe.

But the new centre-left party headed by Zoran Jankovic, who won a surprise victory in December’s snap elections, plans to enact a pension reform that would raise the retirement age to 65.
