''Health and Early Retirement: Evidence from French Data for individuals''
( 2011, Vol. 31 No.1 )
Health status during the working life plays a major role in the retirement decision. Significant links between professional paths, retirement age and retirement conditions (disability pension, inability pension, reduced-rate pension, or full rate by age) can be highlighted by logistic models regressions and a typology of the professional careers of the 1940-generation of the French Social Security insured, whose the insurance period is insufficient to fulfill the full-rate pension criterion.
Keywords: health status, incomplete careers, retirement timing, Social Security
