This paper studies the impact of women’s retirement on their daughters’ employment. Using SHARE and self-collected historical data on legal retirement ages in 20 European countries, I find that women’s retirement leads to an increase in their daughters’ employment only in countries with limited family policies and strong family ties. This positive effect can be explained by increases in in-kind transfers to daughters and grandchild care following retirement.
