Workers’ Daily: Promoting Young Elderly to Continue to Work to Benefit from the “Silver-Hair Dividends”

Worker’s Daily published an article to suggest getting the young elderly to continue working. “Young elderly” (低龄老年) refers to people who retired  at a  relatively younger age than others.

It recommends extending the retirement age. Currently China’s retirement age is 60 for male cadres and employees, 55 for female cadres, and 50 for female employees. The article didn’t give a specific age to which to extend the retirement age. Some other articles mentioned to extend it  to  65 years old for males and 60 years old for females.

The article describes this retirement age delay act as a benefit for the “silver-hair dividends” (银发红利).
