Intergenerational transfers and well-being in old age

In most modern societies, older persons consume more than they produce and therefore resort to other sources of support, such as income from their assets, savings and transfers from their family and the Government (Mason and others, 2009; United Nations, 2013). How older people finance their consumption differs widely across countries and depends on cultural, institutional and economic factors.
