Elzbieta Rafalska
The Polish government received 169,000 first-time retirement applications in the three weeks ended on September 22 ahead of October 1 retirement age cut, social insurance board ZUS announced.
The government will reinstate lower retirement age of 60 years for women and 65 years for men as of October 1. Applications can be filed from September 1.
Earlier, Labor Minister Elzbieta Rafalska said Poland should see a drop in the number of retirement applications to 148,000 in 2018 and 90,000 in 2019 following the expected surge in applications to about 331,000 in 2017 after the introduction of lower retirement age.
The 2017 applications number estimate is based on the assumption of 82% of eligible Poles deciding to retire immediately after reaching retirement age, Rafalska added.
