7Economic Status6564about 70%Wages and salaries account for over 1/6 of the income of elderly households.To curtail the high payroll cost of older employees, more than 90 percentof the Japanese companies have some sort of mandatory retirement arrangements.The most common compulsory retirement age is 60, roughly 75 percentof the private companies take this form. Mandatory retirement age at 65, thesecond commonest arrangement, accounts for only 12.0 percent of overallcases (6-6).Due to the budget shortfall of pension system, the eligible age for employees’pension benefit has been scheduled to be drawn up from 60 to 65 in aphased manner.
