Abstract
We study the retirement effects on mental health using a fuzzy regression discontinuity design based on the eligibility age to the state pension in the Netherlands. We find that the mental effects are heterogeneous by gender and marital status. Retirement of partnered men positively affects mental health of both themselves and their partners. Partnered female retirement has hardly any effect on their own mental health or the mental health of their partners. Single persons retirement does not seem to have an effect on their mental health status.
