Bibliographic information 2002, Vol.XXXIX, No.3, p.115-120. 9 ref.
Abstract The aging of the working-age population is discussed from the point of view of psychology, demography and sociology. Legal measures and recommendations in Belgium are listed with the aim of increasing the proportion of persons who keep on working after the age of 50, in particular by limiting early-retirement schemes and favouring the re-integration of elderly unemployed persons. It describes the various active and preventive measures favoured in Belgium for the encouragement of employment during the final years of employed life.
