I believe it's 60 years old for government employees. After that they are no longer qualified for any vacant jobs. Only small difference with your country.

here in the States the retirement age is 65years old. which only means that you have to be that old to start getting social security benefits that you've been paying into for you whole working life. there are some exceptions to that age though..not sure what they might be, but i know there are some. however..in the past oooh 5 to 8 years more and more seniors are having to continue working..or go back to work in order to afford their monthly houseing, food and medical expenses. i know of at least one man who's had to go back to work at the age of 73.

This is true about seniors working in the US. My husband and I have a retired employee. he is almost 80, works only in the winter. He has been with us for 17 years and is one of our best employees.

In the Philippines, the retirement age is 65 but there are plans in the congress to push it to 70 so long as the individual is physically and mentally fit.
