Broadening the scope of social security coverage against diverse social risks is one of relevant part of social development. However, when the state tries to withdraw existing social privileges, or pursues a policy which induces worsening quality and access to public services, this evokes discontents or even protests in society. Ageing society is a graduating feature of many modern states. Even though it is associated with extending life expectancy, it is also related to decreasing fertility and finally to high net migration outflow, as many jobseekers are looking for better working and living conditions abroad. That is the reason why the efforts undertaken towards balancing the pay-as-you-go pension system only through raising retirement age is not only injustice, but also ineffective in the longer term. What is worse, it can have a negative impact on both the economy and the society, which form together a complex and sensitive system. At the expense of saving financial solutions and under the name of higher and more reasonable pensions, extending retirement age may trigger many other negative consequences, primarily concerning future retirees and new labour market entrants.
