Retirement age has been extended to 65, does it mean the age limit is now 45 for jobs in the public sector?

The retirement age has been extended from 60 to 65 years which means that candidates applying for jobs in the public sector can apply for jobs unless they have reached their 45th birthday (was 40 prior to change in the retirement age). But all the job applications forms still states 40 years. Which is which ?

You should go with what the job description states.

Although logically what you're saying makes sense, I think the employers have the final say on what the ideal candidate profile should be like.

If that's an issue for you, you probably can complain about this as government jobs need to be more aligned with retirement age than the private sector.
