The aim of the article is to present expectations and attitudes of Polish society towards the retirement age. The problem is crucial due to dynamic ageing of population. The research was conducted on a national research sample with calculations based on stratified quota sampling. The research was conducted in 2019 on a sample of n = 2088 respondents. Despite the ageing population, the majority of respondents believe that the age entitling to retirement benefits should not be higher than 60 years for women and 65 for men. Residents of larger cities and respondents with higher earnings supported a higher retirement age. Respondents stated that the most significant factor influencing the amount of retirement benefits is job seniority and the amount of contributions to retirement pension schemes, not the condition of Polish and world economy. The presented results are extremely important for current and future rulers due to the design of changes in the scope of retirement benefits.
