Does retirement age impact mortality?

21st May 2013, Journal Of Health Economics

The relationship between retirement and mortality is studied with a unique administrative data set covering the full population of Norway.

A series of retirement policy changes in Norway reduced the retirement age for a group of workers but not for others.

Difference-in-differences estimation based on monthly birth cohorts and treatment group status show that the early retirement programme significantly reduced the retirement age; this holds true also when we account for programme substitution, for example into the disability pension.

Extending the default retirement age: an assessment of older workers’ health and safety needs

2nd May 2013, Aidan Kelly

With the retirement age increasing, the number of older workers will increase. But as Aidan Kelly, an MSc student at Athlone Institute of Technology found, employers are not well prepared for this challenge – nor, he argues, is the statutory framework.

In his thesis, a summary of which is published below, he argues for a promotion campaign to raise awareness of the challenge and revision of the General Application Regulations to classify older workers as a sensitive risk group.

Abstract

Educating and training the dementia workforce is a global challenge, given the expected increasing number of people living with dementia across the world as the population ages.

Two projects from the UK (one regionally and one locality based) investigated courses available to the workforce and mapped the content of identified courses against a locally developed dementia care pathway.
