The proposal to increase the retirement age limit needs to be refined by the Public Service Department (JPA) via various aspects, including future job opportunities.
Director General of Public Service (KPPA), Tan Sri Mohd. Khairul Adib Abd. Rahman said that the World Bank has proposed to increase the limit of retirement age in stages.
He stated that it is based on improving health and many are still able to serve after the age of 60.
“The proposal to increase the limit of retirement age needs to take into consideration the developing economic situation and existing job opportunities.
“It needs to be looked at again, as there are half a million of students graduating from institutes of higher education every year,” he added.
