[fre] Cette contribution analyse la relation entre le choix du départ à la retraite et le système de sécurité sociale. Elle indique que si dans la réalité l'âge effectif du départ à la retraite est trop bas c'est parce que les travailleurs sont individuellement ou collectivement incités à prendre une telle décision. Elle montre que c'est en jouant sur les incitations implicites au système de sécurité sociale (retraites, invalidité, chômage et même fiscalité directe) que l'on pourra inverser la tendance, ce qui permettra d'assurer la viabilité financière du système de retraite et un bien-être supérieur pour les retraités de demain. [eng] This contribution analyzes the relation between retirement and social security. It explains the very low effective retirement age by individual or collective incentives provided to workers. It shows that by removing the incentives to early retirement implicit in social security (public pensions, disability or unemployment insurance) one can invert the trend towards low activity rates among elderly workers. This kind of policy reform can guarantee the financial viability of social security systems and have a positive effect on the well being of future retirees.
