FFor the last two decades, the increase of employment among individuals aged 50+ has been a policy objective on the European employment agenda. The present paper focuses on the case of Belgium, France, Germany and The Netherlands over the period 1997—2011. First, we provide descriptive analysis of older workers’ employment using data from the European Union Labour Force Survey. Second, we use econometric techniques to explain the different employment and hours of work patterns for various sub-groups of older workers over time. We find evidence of catching up of older generation’s employment rates – with no rupture at the financial crisis in 2007. Third, we use microsimulation techniques to decompose the effects of structural changes, as well as extensive and intensive labor supply changes. [less ▲]

Public pension schemes based on the pay-as-you-go principle are unfunded, by construction. In other words, present and future pensioners rely on the promises made by Social Security institutions for the payment of their pensions. This commitment, basically described by a series of rules defining eligibility conditions, benefits computation and pension contributions, is not reported in national account. Neither as part of the public debt to which in fact they belong. In this paper, we estimate the burden of this implicit debt for Belgium using a representative sample with detailed administrative micro-data from pension record files. Moreover, for present and future pensioners the actuarial expected value of pensions is part of their personal wealth, aside from other assets, but is intangible. Feldstein (1974) introduced the concept of social security wealth (SSW) to describe this component of personal wealth, and showed how individuals’ behavior, mainly labor supply (retirement) and consumption (wealth accumulation), is potentially affected by pension entitlements. The way SSW is distributed among individuals in the Belgian population is another key issue addressed in this paper. [less ▲]
