The aim of this article was to analyse the effect of work-retirement transitions on post-retirement mental health in individuals with different working conditions in late working life.

Educational Outcomes:
Upon completion of this module practitioners should have a clear understanding of the following facts:

  1. The generosity of social protections schemes has a significant positive relation to post-retirement mental health

  2. Individuals with adverse working conditions at the end of their working lives are likely to benefit (from a mental health perspective) from generous early exit pathways
  3. The increased budgetary pressure on governments resulting from overly generous early exit pathways need to be weighed against the positive effects on individuals, specifically those with adverse working conditions later in life.
