Should there be a fixed age of retirement?
France's retirement age will be raised from 60 to 62 over the next eight years. At what age do you want to retire?
French labour minister Eric Woerth says working longer is "inevitable" and necessary to balance the public finances.
The change is likely to be met with stiff resistance from labour unions, and has already sparked strikes and protests in France with more expected in the coming months.
In the UK the coalition government has also announced a review of the retirement age, they want to see the age in the UK rise from 65 to 66 from 2016.
Would you protest against a raised retirement age? Are you already retired but would prefer to work? Will working longer help balance public finances?
