Government To Increase Defence Forces Retirement Age To 62

Government approved the additional increase in the retirement age this week.

Tánaiste Micheál Martin today announced publication of the legislation to an increase in the mandatory retirement age for Defence Forces personnel from 60 to 62.

In March, the Tánaiste increased the mandatory retirement age to 60 for all Defence Forces ranks with a retirement age under 60.

At the time, he indicated that legislation would soon be enacted to allow for a further increase in the mandatory retirement age to 62.

Government approved the additional increase in the retirement age this week, which will take effect on enactment of the relevant legislation.
