Abstract [en]

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.
