The law on retirement age will come into force in October 2017 t the earliest.
Women will retire at 60, men - at 65. this law was one of campaign pledges of the president Andrzej Duda.
The previous government raised the retirement age for three months each year starting with 2012.
The plan was to raise it to 67 years in 2020 for men and in 2040 - for women. Now the plan is cancelled. The government assures that new rulings will not become a financial burden for Poland.
