Do you think people with heavy work can retire sooner?

Yeah sure.You cannot be a man of 67 street maker, or work above your head as a Stuka. Your body is up, then someone from 60 can no longer learn a whole new profession and then compete with young people for the jobs.

I was going to watch a news item about heavy work.It came down to the fact that everyone thinks that he is doing heavy work: construction workers, bus drivers, police officers, teachers. That will be another nice social discussion.

I have another idea: let’s arrange something for people who are at age and find their work heavy, so they can do lighter work, for example.A construction worker could, for example, get an advisory function in a building market. I’ll mention what. The so-called demotion.

(Unfortunately, I often see retired older police officers on a seat in the roadside to flash speed offenders.I think that is a bad example of demotion.)

In Belgium, this law has existed for several years, but could not be performed because one did not agree on which are the heavy professions.If I am not mistaken, we have finally chopped the knot last year and the law applies.

This law has mainly come in a period when more and more companies are closed and people who have been working for a long time could then retire with a bridge.Often that went over relatively young people starting to work at early age Whatand. Initially, these people didn’t have to worry. In theory, one could call you to pursue another job, but that weed never turned into practice.

Now the system has been tightened so that you can only use it from 62 years on condition that you have worked for at least forty years.You will receive a benefit from the government that (if the company still exists) is supplemented with a benefit paid by the employer. If the company is no longer, this is paid out by the umbrella sector. The condition is that there is a collective agreement within that sector in which it is included.

But who loses his job and a certain number of years a so-called heavy profession, can from 58 years with a bridge pension.

Oh yeah I’m sure.As long as during this heavy work the total pension premiums, employer part plus employee part, but do go up, so that everything is fair again. If heavy work costs more by early retirement, it must be paid by the buyers of that heavy work.


I am a great supporter of the Japanese system: a sliding retirement age.If you do (heavy) physical work, you may retire early. If you work in an office, you will retire later. If you are high on the ladder in the company, you will never retire (you will move at the very top of a desk and become an adviser or you become the night porter and so on).

The responsibility to determine what is heavy work and not heavy, would be best placed with the employer: instead of the current system in which the percentages of contributions to social premiums and insurance premiums grow with age (a 25- Year-old graduate wears less than a 55-year-old, for example), these are based on the gravity of the profession and the expected retirement age.

If that is somewhat complex, we have something similar here in the Netherlands for a long time, we call it “Tropical years”.

Note: Such a system would also be much fairer.Now the pension system is still based on the magic word “solidarity”, which in reality means: those who do heavy work must show solidarity with those who do not.

NOTE 2: Such a system could also be an instrument against age discrimination.In the current system, the aforementioned 55 year-old is much more expensive than the 25-year-old graduate, despite the fact that they receive the same net wage, for example, because for that first the employer has to pay far more social and insurance premiums Then for that second.

The one will do hard work with a smile up to its most powerful year of life.The other will be a wreck for his 40th.

Which emotional baggage you wear on your shoulders will determine whether you can do another 10 kilos or not.

What weighs you will determine whether physical or psychic power brings you closer to your grave.

The legislation has replaced the soul, a sort of regularity that the 1 has helped and the other is going to go down.

Yes.In general, the body wears harder with heavy work.

The reason that many people (me too) believe that people with heavy work should be allowed to retire earlier because, because of the impact that the work has on the body, it becomes almost impossible to continue doing this work up to the retirement age.

However, what I am also wondering is whether I can continue to do my work as a programmer until the expected retirement age.I can still keep up with the ever-changing technologies.

Unlike most of the people who have responded, I totally disagree that people with a heavy profession may retire earlier.I am going to give you some arguments for this. First of all, it is difficult to define what exactly is a heavy profession. Most people will indeed agree that a street maker or Mason has a heavy profession. But what do you think of a dentist or surgeon? Do you think these people if they are 67, still have the same surgical precision and no higher risk of VB low back pain. Maw have a worn back? When you start working and how many years you should have worked, I don’t find a good argument either. It is not about time, but about the amount of pension money that has been inlaid, x an exponential factor of time (money that was previously inlaid, can render longer and thereby gives more return).

It is best that VB has been a dentist or surgeon after thirty years of working for the AOW, even if you take into consideration that this money has been able to render less.The next argument that is given is that it is given frequently, is that one of a street maker of 60 can no longer expect that he or she is going to retrain, or that he or she can no longer. This is also the reason why one has opted for a long transitional period in which the AOW age handles.

So the people with a heavy profession know a lot earlier that they have to work longer.Namely, since 2013, the AOW age is already incrementally up. If you know in advance that you have to work longer and that with a heavy profession it will be harder. So you already have the choice to go and retrain to a less demanding profession. This should also be more stimulated after my idea. Do not start retraining if the individual already suffers from physical complaints at the age of 60 years VB. In fact, it is really a thought of the 20th century that the same profession remains to be exercised during the entire working life. During the 21st century, there is more flexibility and more exchanges of jobs. The motto, life-long learning and innovation is also very important this century. Especially given the accelerated technological development. Lifelong learning will therefore apply to everyone and can therefore also be used to ensure that people with a heavy profession do not have a heavy profession at the age of VB 60 years.
