Early retirement age

The early retirement age is the age you have when you can begin your early retirement.

To be eligible for early retirement benefits on the day when you reach your early retirement age, you must have been a member and paid early retirement contributions long enough.

The early retirement age is adapted to the state pension age which differs depending on your age.
