200,000 Dutch residents working past pension age
The number of people aged 65 and over in the Netherlands who still work has topped 200,000 for the first time, ING economists reported.
On average they work 18 hours a week and three out of four older workers are male.
Nowadays, one in 12 people work past the official retirement age, compared with just one in 30 ten years ago.
The government is in the process of raising the state pension age to 67, in line with increases in life expectancy.
