Research Project

Reseach project "Retirement decisions within the domestic context"

Coordination of retirement within the domestic context: Impacts of early or late retirement of the respective partners within the household.

The project with its open qualitative research method aims at gaining more insights on the impact of the domestic context on a broader and on the role of partnership on a more specific level. It wants to show how retirement is coordinated within these spheres regarding the variety of influencing factors that are at work.

Founded by the Research Network „Alterssicherung“ of the German statutory pension insurance scheme (Deutsche Rentenversicherung)
