Sylvia Lim on Retirement and Re-employment (Amendment) Bill

Remove Singapore's prescribed minimum retirement age and re-employment age, said MP Sylvia Lim. Making this call in Parliament on Monday (Nov 1), she said while raising the minimum ages progressively is a step in the right direction, continuing to have a minimum retirement age set out in law has a "signalling effect" on society on the value of workers above that age. "If we truly believe in active ageing, it is worth reviewing whether there should be a prescribed minimum retirement age at all," she said. Instead of having a decision forced on them at a certain age, empower seniors to make their own choice in this matter, she said.
