This is shown by forthcoming statistical research conducted by statisticians Jesson Einmahl MSc and Professor John Einmahl of Tilburg University, and Professor Emeritus Laurens de Haan of Erasmus University Rotterdam. They base their conclusion on precise ages at death of 75,000 Dutch people who died in the last 30 years at the age of at least 94.

Two-thirds of them are very interested in the option of semi-retirement, if it is available. “If it was up to employees, then a flexible pension system could be introduced today,” concludes Arthur van Soest of Tilburg University.
