Irish AtCO's to work forever

At the moment it's just a plan by management to fix the hole in the pension fund by making us work for longer. 40 - 50 year olds to work till 61, 30 - 40 till 63, under 30's till 65. Still subject to medicals and competency examinations of course.

Or something like that.......

Je voudrais travailler en France, mais........

In the US you are first eligible to retire with 25 years of "live" ATC at any age, OR, 20 years "live" ATC and at least 50 years old. Mandatory retirement from "live" ATC at 56. Very few "year-to-year" waivers granted beyond 56.

How have things gone in the last 7 years? Have states been removing limits, applying new ones?

I am very happy to retire (aged 50). Please PM me if you would like my job, I need the pay still, so we need to look at somebody working for me whilst I take the wages?
