Keeping Track: retirement age

An uptick, on average, around the world

Men are lengthening their careers - a little.

A survey of social indicators in 30 member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) found the average retirement age for men has risen slightly, from 62.2 to 62.5. The survey compared data from two periods, 1983-1988 and 1994-1999.

The average retirement age was significantly higher in Asian countries. Men in Japan waited the longest, with an average retirement age of 69.1, followed by Korea, at 67.1.
