Hypotheses were tested using structural equation modeling.FindingsPerceptions of value congruence at vocational level and needs and supplies fit at organizational and job levels were positively related to the intention to hold bridge employment after retirement. The fit between older worker’s abilities and job demands was positively related to the two types of retirement intentions.Originality/valueThe complexity of retirement transition is taken into account with the introduction of two types of retirement intentions.
