      Women's Retirement Age to Stay at 62 until 2017

      Chairman Chaim Katz of the Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee came to an agreement with Treasury officials, Monday, to leave the retirement age for women at 62 for the next five years.

      The Knesset will have to re-examine changes to the retirement age in 2017, at which time the process to raise it to 64 will start, unless decided otherwise.
