With the reform the world of pensions has been completely revolutionized, and the much- expected retirement has become a mirage for many Italians. The rules are many and seem to change from day to day, it’s not clear the criterion adopted and unfortunately there seem to be more disadvantages than advantages for the workers. In this climate of chaos, however, there are cases where even having reached retirement age, some people do not want to retire from the world of work and want to continue working. The retirement age in this case is called flexible and allows you to continue working by making a postponement of retirement .

Today in Italy you go pension based on the old, old old-age pensions based on an integration between age and contribution period have been abolished altogether. The board takes 66 years of age if you are civil servants both men and women, and 62 if female and employed in the private sector. You can choose to go first but only by accepting a cut in salary / pension. If you want to continue working, the reform plan to be able to withdraw from the world of work even after reaching the requirements met, but until the age of 70 years. Then you are forced to go into mandatory retirement.


In this case, the pension will increase because it will be calculated on a coefficient of transformation that will also take account of the age of the worker. The flexibility varies depending on the category of the employee whether public or private. The person who intends to continue to work can do so without pay social security contributions under a contract -year term. The contract will be renewed at the end until the age of 70 years. The board then will be collected at the end of the two-year contract. If you were to fail not because the working condition of the worker, but for business problems, the subject will receive the pension from the month following discontinuation of the contract.

This contract must be sent to the INPS office together with the statement of the person who renounces the contributions and intends to continue the employment relationship. This practice of flexibility seemed to be very much in demand before the reform, when the workers having started working very young they found themselves already retired at age 50, but now with raising the retirement age will be difficult for a person decides to request flexibility .
