Continuing work or retiring? An introduction to theory and practice of retirement in the Netherlands

The topic of this special issue on retiring or continuing work among older employees is introduced. In addition to an overview of relevant Dutch retirement legislation and statistics on retirement in the Netherlands, we pay attention to the operationalisation of retirement and highlight important psychological perspectives and theories on the topic of retirement. Furthermore, we summarize the theoretical and empirical findings of earlier research on retirement. Finally, we discuss the seven contributions of this special issue and formulate a research agenda.
