Normal retirement age to remain at 66 yrs 5 mths in 2020

The retirement age in Portugal is to remain at 66 years and 5 months in 2020.

The decision is based on statistics which state that the calculated average life expectancy in 2018 stood at 85.


Workers applying for early retirement in 2019 would see their pensions cut by almost 15 percent due to the increase in life expectancy.
