VILNIUS, Lithuania (AP) — Lithuanian lawmakers have decided to gradually raise the pension age to 65 to improve the Baltic country's public finances.
The Lithuanian parliament approved the plan Thursday in a 60-42 vote, where 12 lawmakers abstained from voting.
The current age for retirement is 60 for women and 62 and a half for men.
The new plan means the pension age will be raised by two months a year for men and four months a year for women to reach 65 for both by 2026.
The decision follows similar moves across Europe, where countries have been forced to cut spending to bring down public debt.
