dc.description.abstractUsing data from the first eleven waves of the German Socio-Economic Panel this studyinvestigates the dynamic effects of health shocks on employment and economic wellbeingof older workers. A health shock trebles the probability of leaving the labor forceand almost doubles the unemployment risk. The financial effects of health shocks aresmall on average and those individuals with the highest remaining earnings potentialare least affected by the health shock. Welfare state instruments support the poorestsection of the population but do not succeed in neutralizing the effects of a healthshock for these groups.en_US
