Abstract:The author estimates the effect of the means tested South African old age pension on labour supply amongst the elderly African subpopulation in South Africa. He finds significant decreases in employment rates and labour supply. Those who remain employed beyond the pensionable age are more likely to work in jobs with flexible hours of work, and work even fewer hours than people in similar jobs who are not pension age-eligible. Results suggest that governments do need to consider the labour supply-related incentives provided via its various welfare programmes. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
