Abstract: Pensions and transfer systems are important for the actual retirement decisions of older people. The institutional environment plays an important role in creating the rules and conditions which influence both workers’ and employers’ behaviour. Individual decisions to work depend highly on benefit levels and eligibility criteria in public pension and other social security schemes, but also in private pension schemes. This chapter explores the Czech Republic’s public and private pension systems as well as reforms undertaken during the past decade.
