Disability retirement among German men in the 1980s
In Germany, a large proportion of new retirees-at times, more than half of them-have taken disability retirement. This study investigates the role of expected benefits in determining that choice. The author finds that among German men in 1984-91, age, health, and prior wages were much stronger predictors of the transition into disability retirement than were expected benefits. She concludes that a benefit reduction would be largely ineffective in reducing the high level of disability retirement in Germany. (Abstract courtesy JSTOR.)
