France’s Retirement Age Increase Could Signal Future Changes for U.S. Retirement System: France’s increase in retirement age from 62 to 64 could have implications for the United States, as both countries are facing an aging population and increased longevity. Social Security is the primary federal program for retirees in the US, but the trust fund is projected to run a deficit in about 10 years. There has been discussion about increasing the full retirement age for Social Security beyond 67, which may place pressure on retirement savings and add stress to the lives of lower-income earners. Segal’s National Retirement Practice Leader and SVP, Jonathan Price, discusses the need for education and information about retirement planning and the role of stakeholders such as employers and the government in ensuring sustainable retirement programs for future generations.
