ABSTRACT: Many governments worldwide have implemented reforms that raise retirement ages aiming at extending working lives, to mitigate the expected aging-related labor shortages. Such reforms and the concerns about the length of working life have generated extensive literature investigating the determinants of labor market exits. The study of determinants of retirement in proximity to the event ignores the complex link between retirement transition and other life course transitions affecting working trajectories. Moreover, extending working lives has consequences for individuals and society. While a vast literature has investigated the health consequences of retirement, only a few studies have assessed how social participation and retirement are related.
In this talk, I will discuss findings from my research on:
1) Life course predictors of work and health trajectories at old ages
2) how postponing retirement affects health in old age
3) how extending working life affects social participation in old age.
I will conclude by opening a discussion on how this work is related to future and current research that focuses on explaining retirement patterns and outcomes in an era of increasingly complex working and family trajectories.
