Raising the retirement age for police

The Massachusetts legislature is considering a bill to raise the retirement age for police and fire fighters. Law makers are looking to raise the required years of service from 20 to 25 years.

The obvious reason for this development is it delays paying out retirement benefits during a time period where most states are strapped for cash. At the same time, have the implications of forcing people to work longer at these physically demanding jobs been properly studied?
