The European Commission has released the final report of the project on health-related constraints to raising retirement ages in the EU from the Health Systems Performance Assessment Expert Group. The project investigated the impact of preventing chronic diseases on disability, unemployment and death by developing a simulation model that describes the path running from chronic diseases to disability, unemployment and death for several European Union countries. Results from the model show that decreasing disease and disability incidence results in increases in the total number of years lived and of years lived free of disabilities and active in labour force and decreases in the public payer expenditures. Moreover, results also depict the limitations of public policies aimed at increasing the pension age for the investigated countries and the impact variation of different public policies and epidemiological scenarios on various population groups within the EU.
