Singapore will introduce a new law from 2012 making it mandatory for employers to offer re-employment to workers beyond their retirement age of 62. First offer to work until 65 then later will pushed up to 67.
When the Malaysian Government offered its employees option to retire upon reaching 56 years old, not all accepted and I know for a fact that there are a lot in my area who had retired at 55. Retiring at 62 and re-employed? In my village, those in this age group still walking tall are less then my fingers. For one, I am thankful that I am now 52 and can not imagine how I look like put another 10 years on my age.
