Social Security Administration (SSA) retirement age to be able to be eligible to receive old age benefits is now at 60 years old.

This was contained in a measure signed yesterday into law by President Remengesau.

RPPL 10-03 fixed the inconsistencies to the existing law by fixing the retirement age for SSA benefits.

Adjusting the age of the retirement eligibility was a rider in the law that increases the salaries of the members of the Supreme Court.

Under the 2017 Unified budget, $2,000,000 was appropriated to pay the additional $50 benefit to retirees each month as alternative to Senior Citizens Discount. [/restrict]
