“We have discussed it and we asked Inland Revenue to consult further and to advise us,” Browne said.
“We don’t want to do it without any consultations, we have to speak to the unions as well and get their concurrence, then we will make the adjustment.

The Social Security retirement age moved from 60 to 62 this year. It will increase to 63 in 2021 and 65 by the year 2025.
