60 = 50: New Study Reveals Increases in Life Expectancy Reflect Slower Population Aging

Raising the age of eligibility for the Old Age Security pension and the Guaranteed Income Supplement will increase inequalities between older people. “This change will force retired people into greater dependence on their private savings to support them as they get older.
