ABSTRACT
Delaying the retirement age has become a general countermeasure taken by most countries. Because the average life expectancy, the initial labor age and the total pension deficit have increased, and there is no positive connection between the retirement age and the unemployment rate, it is both feasible and necessary for China to delay the retirement age under the background of population aging. To implement the above retirement policy without arousing social objections, measures including extending female retirement age, establishing the flexible retirement system, linking the basic pension with working years and adopting the approach of progressive reforms, should be taken to ensure long-term interests.
