To prolong careers to match longer life expectancy, enabling people to continue to develop personally, professionally, socially, and economically.
Due to the increase in life expectancy and good health, people often continue to work after retirement age. With life expectancy now at 82, pensions have to last 20 years or more. However, the number of years of work has not increased and sometimes even decreases because of late entry into the workforce; so in many cases, 35 years of work supports 20 years of retirement. This creates serious economic problems.
Working also has a positive effect on people, which manifests in better health, financial security that benefits both the individual and the state, and a sense of meaning by being a productive member of society.
