This research identified four different aspects of decisions to retire. Firstly, it describes the planned retirement age decision of the sample in terms of an ogive; secondly, it identifies the factors influencing the decisions to retire by retirees and contrasts them with factors important to non-retirees. Thirdly, it reports a model of the probability of working full time because those who find fulltime employment are in a better position not only to plan for their retirement but also to have a secure income at retirement; and finally, it analyses the planned retirement age of non-retired Australians and investigates further the determinants of planned retirement ages.
