UTRECHT – It is for most Dutch people are physically, mentally and socially to their 75th birthday by working.

That confirms Foundation Look To Work Friday as a result of coverage in The Financieele Dagblad.

The foundation relies on data from the WAI-datebase in which the working capacity of approximately 100,000 employees is determined.

Chairman Jan Laurel from the foundation emphasizes, however, that there is a major differentiation exists between different professional groups and individuals. “But, on average, and with the necessary ifs and buts is working till the 75th as possible,” he says.


According to the WAI database are mainly people who have a college degree have enjoyed previously burned. “Especially people in education and in the care scored below the national average,” continues Laurel.

“I suspect that that is because those people often have an action in which they have little development. Research shows that the ability to continue working people that their life-long learning remains higher.”
