Italy Deputy PM promises to dismantle pension reform "piece by piece"

ROME, June 13 (Reuters) - The new Italian government will dismantle a 2011 pension reform “piece by piece”, Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said on Wednesday, adding that the final goal was to focus on the number of years people had worked, rather their age.

The 2011 reform, named after then-Welfare Minister Elsa Fornero, raised the retirement age and requires further rises over time, with the next hike — to 67 years from 66 years and 5 months — due to take place on Jan. 1, 2019.

Salvini said the government’s ultimate goal was to let anyone who had paid in 41 years of pension contributions to retire, regardless of how old they were. (Reporting by Alberto Sisto; Editing by Crispian Balmer)
