- Spain is really immersed in that crisis.
- Long term pensions are not guaranteed.
- A huge part of the population (50%-70%) go into retirement before their 65 (the official age), and just 35% of people are working until they are 65 years old.
- University students don't start to pay for the national insurance until they are almost 25, later than they are expected.
- Life expectancy is longer than when the current pensions system was elaborated.
- We have more sanitary resources.
- Whe have developed technology, so we don't have to work as (physically) hard as before.
- When people are retired, they get depressed.
- Businessmen who own a small company go to the retirement to draw the pension, but they don't give up managing their familiar business. It seems they don't trust young and qualified generations...
- Young generations are less populated and have under qualified jobs, however they are paying the retirement of very populated old generations during around 30 years (since they go into retirement until they die). Will they be able to do that longer?
Aren't these reasons enough to extend the retirement age just two years?
And, what about a partial retirement after the age of 65?
