Beyond delaying the legal age of retirement, both the European employment policy and the European pensions policy, support the continuity of elder people in the labour market by means of other strategies set up in the EU member States. The paper deals with a Spanish-French comparative view on two main trends in this field. The first part of the article deals with the advance partial retirement. Thus, while Spain is cutting back the room of advance partial retirement, --instead of managing some reforms in order to transform it into a more acceptable one-the trend in France is to strengthen the advance partial retirement, in order to foster the gradual exit of workers from the labour market. Regarding the other main trend -fostering the accumulation of pensions and wages beyond the age of retirement-, the article stresses a common general trend in Spain and France. Anyway it has been found a more flexible scheme in France than in Spain, because in France it is nowadays possible to accumulate the whole retirement pension along with a full time job. The paper concludes that this last trend raises some important questions on, for instance, the future role of Social Security retirement benefits, or the understanding of the work carried on by more and more elder workers.
