Controversies over pension reforms in general – and increases in pension age in particular – have never been far from the news headlines since the previous edition of Pensions at a Glance was published in June 2009. It is appropriate, therefore, that the theme of this 2011 edition is pensions, retirement and life expectancy and the links between them. “Pensionable age and life expectancy, 1950-2050” is the first of five special chapters of Part I. It shows that around half of OECD countries have already begun increasing pension ages or plan to do so in near the future. Pension ages will increase in 18 countries forwomen and 14 countries for men. By 2050, the average pensionable age in OECD countries will reach nearly 65 for both sexes. This represents an increase in 2010 of nearly 2.5 years for men and 4 years for women.
