Rente mit 67: Wie lange die Deutschen arbeiten können und wollen


  • Beatrice Scheubel
  • Joachim Winter


Unter den Reformplänen der großen Koalition wurde und wird die Verlängerung der Lebensarbeitszeit besonders kontrovers diskutiert. Beatrice Scheubel, Center for Economic Studies (CES), und Joachim Winter, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, untersuchen das häufig vorgebrachten Argument, die Menschen seien im Alter gesundheitlich nicht mehr fit genug, um bis 67 arbeiten zu können. Sie analysieren repräsentative Befragungsdaten aus der Mannheimer SAVE-Studie über die Erwartungen der noch arbeitenden Bevölkerung hinsichtlich der individuellen Arbeitsfähigkeit im Alter. Es zeigt sich, dass das Bild, das in der öffentlichen Diskussion gezeichnet wird, zu düster ist. Die verbreitete Ablehnung einer Erhöhung des Rentenalters geht nicht unbedingt mit einer niedrigen individuellen Arbeitsfähigkeit im Alter einher.
