Abstract

Draws evidence from the National Institute on Aging's Health and Retirement Study to examine the pensions held by those approaching retirement age in the United States. Discusses theories explaining pensions; employment and retirement in the Health and Retirement Study; pension data in the Health and Retirement Study; pension plan participation in the Health and Retirement Study; pension plan type; imperfect knowledge of pension plan type; pension retirement ages; pension values; retirement incentives from defined benefit pensions; disposition of pensions upon leaving a job and pension incomes in retirement; and the changing role of pensions in total wealth.
