Plan to keep pensioners at work

Social affairs minister Piet Hein Donner will today present his long-awaited plan to encourage more people to stay in work past the age of 65.

‘We have to accept the idea of working until the age of 65 and then reduce our hours,’ news agency ANP quoted Donner as saying.
The plan involves changes to sick pay rules for the over-65s, ANP says.
