- Increasing the pension age above the usual threshold of 65 years is very often recommended to ensure financial sustainability of old-age pension systems, especially of those based on the PAYG principle. At the same time, a closer and clearer relation between the pension age threshold and the level of mortality is required. A possible way may be using the concept of so-called “relative” prospective age, which would ensure that the average proportion of the time of receiving an old-age pension to the total life span would remain approximately constant. It seems to be natural to determine the relative prospective age using not period, but cohort life tables. But cohort life tables are not as widely available as period ones. Moreover, it is proven that in some cases cohort and period prospective ages are almost identical. The paper presents a comparison of differences in retirement ages based on the relative prospective age concept derived by cohort life tables and by period ones separately for Czechia, Slovakia, Poland and Spain. Computations are based on the latest available Eurostat data and population projection.
