Socioeconomic inequalities in health have important consequences for employment and pensions. Less well educated people are often more unhealthy than those with a higher level of education. As a consequence, they are more likely to lose their jobs, and this in turn has negative effects on their health. Less well educated people lose more than 2 years of working life due to problems with their health; among those with higher level of education this loss is approximately 0.4 years. The influence of retirement on health shows some interesting differences; lower educated people seem to experience better health after retirement, while retirement seems to have a negative effect on the selfassessed experience of health among people with the highest level of education. From a populationhealth perspective the time has come to consider a madetomeasure age of retirement.
