Past research addressing the influence of retirement on well-being remains limited because it pays insufficient attention to retirement contexts and to the heterogeneity of retirement experiences among diverse population groups. This paper deals with both limitations. We investigate specific contexts of the retirement transition (type of retirement, spouse s disability), and we explore whether the influence of these contexts on depressive symptoms differs by gender. Our analyses are based on the first four waves of the Health and Retirement Survey (HRS).
