Will the pension reform imply, for the French, to work longer? Invited on RMC / BFMTV on June 9, Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux pleaded for a retirement age set at 64, against 62 today. A position that he has maintained for nearly two years.
According to the head of Medef, three levers are currently possible to carry out this reform: an increase in contributions, which it is no longer possible to increase; the temporary deindexation of pensions, which would imply a temporary effort on the part of retirees; finally, a change in the retirement age. “The real reform is to work longer», Indicated Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux. As a reminder, the executive plans to push back the retirement age before the end of the five-year term.
