The National Elderly Commission has agreed to raise the official age of elderly people in Thailand from 60 to 65, Social Development and Human Security Minister Anantaporn Kanjanarat said.

The elderly age is used by the government to determine eligibility for a monthly allowance.

Anantaporn said the commission agreed to amend Article 3 of the 2003 National Elderly Act to raise the elderly age.

Anantaporn said the commission also assigned a subcommittee to study possible impact and how to amend all laws concerned before an amendment bill will be submitted to the Cabinet for approval.
