Workers will have to be 67 years old or have 41 years of service to qualify for full pensions, Labour and Pension System Minister Mirando Mrsic said on Tuesday, announcing changes to be brought by a labour and pension system reform.
Croatia’s Labour and Pension System Minister Mirando Mrsic has confirmed on Tuesday that Croatia’s retirement age will increase.
Workers in Croatia will be eligible for full pensions at the age of 67, or after 41 years of service in the workforce. The new law will come into effect from 1 January 2014. The changes come as reforms are made to the pension system as the nation battles with an ageing population. Mrsic also announced that part of the new labour bill, which will be introduced next year, will be the ability for employees to go on strike if their salaries are late just one day.
