ABSTRACT
The article discusses the history and nature of retirement pension plans and its systems. It highlights three historical phases of retirement as a social institution, which involve the agricultural, industrial and knowledge-service economies. The three phases reflect the differences in the relation of age to life expectancy, health and vigor, and how corporate and government pensions respond to it.
