In the article I am writing about ageing of Polish society in the perspective of systemic and cultural retirement transition strategies. I intend to answer the following question: how do the different categories of elderly employees react to the job market situation in Poland and what kinds of strategies of retirement do they apply in context of cultural patterns influencing social roles of old people. In reference to this, I make an assumption in the article that people interpret social expectations in their own ways while forming their retirement strategies. Nevertheless, the form and speed of withdrawal from labor market in Poland depend both on the person's state of health as well as on intertwined systemic and cultural factors.
