This research aims to further understand the factors affecting the labour market participation of older people at, and after, State Pension Age. The report presents findings based on cross-sectional analyses of the Labour Force Survey and Family Resources Survey and longitudinal analyses of the British Household Panel Survey. The report examines the circumstances under which people work after SPA, the types of jobs they have, and the impact working post-SPA has on the wealth, health and happiness of the working compared with the non-working retired population. PFRC worked in collaboration with the Policy Studies Institute on this project.
