We study job retention among older workers in Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, using EU LFS data for the 1998-2013 period. We find that, on average, about 30% of workers aged 55-59 performed the same job five years later. Job retention rates were higher among men than among women. Between 2003 and 2013, retention rates increased for both genders in Poland and for males in Czechia, fluctuated in Slovakia and decreased noticeably for both genders in Hungary. We estimate bivariate probit models of job retention and non-retirement among 60-64 year-olds. Workers with tertiary education, in high-skilled jobs, in education and health sectors, and living with a working partner were more likely to remain in their jobs over the 5-year periods. Changes in retention rates over time were to a larger extent driven by changes in the overall conditions than by changes in job-related and personal characteristics.
