Summary

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.
