Plans And Preferences Of Older American Workers
AbstractThe study compares the retirement plans and preferences of a recent sample of older Americans. The Data suggest that a substantial minority of older workers expect to retire earlier than they really want to, and that many would delay retirement under different terms and conditions of employment. We conclude that, although most older Americans cannot or do not want to work, many do, and these represent a significant underutilized labor market resource.
