dc.description.abstractWithout broad-based public pension schemes, the majority of the elderly in developing countriesare left to rely on their own current and accumulated earnings and support from children asmeans of old-age support. We develop a cooperative bargaining model that allows us to jointlyestimate the determinants of coresidency, financial transfers from non-coresiding children, andthe labor-supply of elderly Indonesians. We find that many Indonesians, especially men,continue to work well into old age even if they are living with their adult children. There is littleevidence that transfers are a substitute for the income support provided by the elderly parent?sown labor supply. Transfers are associated with a decline in hours of work only for noncoresidingmothers. Furthermore, transfers are not strongly related to parental need or the abilityof the child to give.en_US
