Report No. 67

Older People's Preferences for Employment and Retirement in Ireland
Tony Fahey and Helen Russell

The report sought to identify the employment and retirement preferences of people in the age-range 55-69 using a nationally representative sample which divided roughly evenly into three groups: those at work, the retired and those in home duties. The study revealed that some seven out of ten of those in currently at work would prefer to retire more gradually than is normal in the present system. This desire was consistent across those surveyed who are planning to retire early and those planning to retire at the normal age; and also across the main occupational categories.
