Bridge employment, a Swedish perspective
2014 (English)In: Bridge employment: a research handbook / [ed] Carlos-María Alcover, Gabriela Topa, Emma Parry, Franco Fraccaroli and Marco Depolo, London: Routledge, 2014, 51-69 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Swedish (and Nordic) patterns of work in old age display a large proportion of males and females 55+ gainfully employed, but a fairly low level of bridge employment. A partial explanation is found in the basic state pension to all with an addition based on years of work and part- vs. fulltime employment. Recently, work after 65 yrs increased, primarily among individuals with an academic education. Furthermore, women with a non-continous and part-time carreer, usually with a lower income, need to continue working in order to increase their pension. Other motivational factors and recent modification of legislative policies are discussed.
