Three concurrent societal trends are collectively placing immigration and retirement on a collision course of sorts: (a) the largest age segment in many societies (i.e., the baby-boomer generation) is approaching or reaching conventional retirement age, (b) many employers are experiencing significant difficulties attracting and retaining qualified personnel, and (c) immigration rates in many industrialized nations are increasing. In this chapter, we consider how growing immigration and retirement can coexist either in collaboration or competition with one another. In doing so, we consider this impending collision from the perspectives of both natives and immigrants. We conclude the chapter by identifying several avenues for future research to determine ways through which the two might coincide more fruitfully.
