WP 3 addresses how retirement and post-retirement work is influenced by socioeconomic and health inequalities in late life as well as by family circumstances. It studies how late life labor-market experiences interact with family circumstances to influence retirement and post-retirement work and how these relationships may have changed over time in relation to changes in the Swedish pension system.
