Abstract:Several countries, among which the Netherlands and the United States, experience a rapidly aging population. An increasing group of (mostly) vital people is expected to retire in the following years and the deployment of older people becomes more important in the future as a solution to solve the long‐term labor market shortage. Therefore, retirement and employment after retirement have become an increasing research issue in the field. The central theme in this study is the employment of people that passed the official pensionable age of 65, referred to as bridge employment. The purpose of this study is to indicate factors that explain the choice between paid or unpaid bridge employment and career continuous or career discontinuous bridge employment. This study tries to improve the understanding in a relative small group of people that currently choose to continue working after retirement. To gain this purpose, the relationship between the factors personal characteristics, work needs, work role attachment and the choice for the mentioned work contexts is examined in this study. According to previous research, these factors can influence bridge employment choices.
