Post-retirement labour supply in England

This paper uses data from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing to investigate the determinants of post retirement labour supply behaviour amongst retired men in England. I find the hazard of unretirement is highest when an individual is in their mid-late 60s. Evidence suggests unretirement is more likely amongst individuals with a higher level of educational attainment, who have a spouse in the labour market and are in better health. I investigate the nature of unretirement jobs and find they tend to be part time and provide a non-trivial source of income.
