A. “The Impact of Age Pension Eligibility Age on Retirement and Program Dependence: Evidence from an Australian Experiment,” by Kadir Atalay and Garry F. Barrett (SEDAP Working Paper No. 295, May 2012, .pdf format, 43p.)

Abstract:

Identifying the effect of the financial incentives created by social security systems on the retirement behaviour of individuals requires exogenous variation in program parameters. In this paper we study the 1993 Australian Age Pension reform which increased the eligibility age for women to access the social security benefit. We find economically significant responses to the increase in the Age Pension eligibility age. An increase in the eligibility age of 1 year induced a decline in retirement probability by approximately 10 percent. In addition, we find that the social security reform induced significant \program substitution.” The rise in the Age Pension eligibility age had an unintended consequence of increasing enrolment in other social insurance programs, particularly the Disability Support Pension, which functioned as an alternative source for funding retirement.

B. “Changes in Subjective Well-being with Retirement: Assessing Savings Adequacy in Australia,” by Garry F. Barrett and Milica Kecmanovic (SEDAP Working Paper No. 296, May 2012, .pdf format, 33p.)

Abstract:

Does retirement represent a state of relative prosperity or a time of unanticipated economic hardship? To assess whether individuals are successful in smoothing their well-being across the transition to retirement we analyse measures of relative subjective wellbeing (SWB) in the Australian HILDA Survey. Specifically, this research examines individual’s self-reported change in their standard of living, financial security, and overall happiness over the transition to retirement. It is found SWB either improves or remains constant for the large majority of individuals as they retire from the labour force. However, there are significant disparities in changes in well-being with retirement among retirees. In particular, the subset of individuals who are forced to retire early due to job loss or their own health, and who find their income in retirement to be much less than expected, report marked declines in their well-being in retirement.

Modelling the Cohort Effect in CBD Models Using a Piecewise Linear Approach,” by Y. Zhao and P.J. Sweeting (Discussion Paper PI-1205, May 2012, .pdf format, 29p.).

Abstract:

This paper discusses a new pattern of mortality model which is built on the form and knowledge of the two-factor mortality model named after its designers Cairns, Blake and Dowd (2006). This model – the CBD model – is widely used and has been extended by the authors in a number of ways, including by the use of a cohort effect. In this paper, we propose a range of new parsimonious approaches to model the cohort effect. Instead of adding a cohort factor to an age-period model we model the effect by building discontinuities into the pattern of rates within each year. The fit of the resulting models is close to that available from the best of the CBD derivatives.

Active Ageing Beyond the Labour Market: Evidence on Work Environment Motivations,” by Catherine Pollak and Nicolas Sirven (IRDES Working Paper No. 48, May 2012, .pdf format, 18p.).

Abstract:

‘Active Ageing’ strategies aim to foster the participation of seniors in the society. Although economic literature has extensively studied the incentives for seniors to increase their labour supply, little is known about the motivations for older people to complement labour with other forms of social participation. Using data from the Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe, this article provides empirical evidence of the motivational role of the work environment in the supply of formal and informal productive activities of 50 to 65 year old workers. The results show that intrinsic rewards received at work, such as skill development opportunities and decision latitude, form an incentive for older workers to invest time in social activities outside the labour market. Extrinsic rewards on the other hand, like advancement perspectives, job security and pay, appear independent from non-market outcomes. Therefore, the opportunity for work time arrangements but also intrinsic rewards in the work environment should be developed if one aims to foster participation of older workers in the society.
