This paper documents the Employment and Pensions module in the first wave of the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). This is the first survey in Europe that collects extensive cross-national interdisciplinary data on different aspects of the life of the elderly, ranging from health conditions to economic status. The Employment and Pensions module is constructed to elicit information on labor force participation, earnings and other incomes such as pensions and benefits. We show both the structure of the module and selected preliminary results.
