Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Based on data from the two first waves of SHARE- Israel, conducted in 2004-2005 and 2009-2010, this study examines the extent to which individuals moved in or out of paid work and the extent to which these labor market transitions are associated with policy changes introduced in the years 2004-2008 (delay of pensionable age and expansion of pension coverage), and with changes in pension wealth, health status, job characteristics and other background variables. In addition this study analyzed the impact of retirement on the well–being of the recent retirees by several objective and subjective indicators.
