    Arbejdsindkomst efter pensionering - Resumé

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Det er blevet mere og mere almindeligt for arbejdstagere i EU at påtage sig lønnet arbejde, efter de er pensioneret. Denne tendens tilføjer en vigtig dimension til den nuværende debat om at forlænge arbejdslivet. Det kan bidrage til bæredygtige pensionssystemer, hvis mulighederne for arbejde efter pensionering forbedres for dem, der gerne vil arbejde. Denne undersøgelse omhandler pensionisternes motiver for at søge lønnet arbejde og deres muligheder for beskæftigelse. Det undersøges, i hvilket omfang arbejde efter pensionering er forbundet med spørgsmålet om tilstrækkelig indkomst blandt den pensionerede befolkning. Det undersøges også, hvilken type lønnet arbejde pensionisterne udfører, og hvordan virksomhederne forsøger at rekruttere og fastholde pensionister. Rapporten afsluttes med anbefalinger til myndigheder, arbejdsgivere og pensionister.
