Italy is the oldest countries in Europe and is the second in the world after Japan. The share of population 65+ aged was in Italy, in 2017 and its increase in the future is already written. The weight of ageing depends both on the pensions and the cost of maintaining an elderly population. The age structure of the working age population is already changed and is changing. In light of these changes, it is important to analyse the distributed retired people and retirement benefits. We aim to analyse the elderly population distinguishing by retired and not retired people. Data on retirement benefits are available thanks to our research project at the Italian Social Security Institute (INPS). We want to classify retired people on basis of the retirement characteristic describing the elderly population on the basis of the classification proposed. We want to analyse the “weight” of retired people in every generation. The analysis by generation allows to highlight how the propensity to retire is changing in passage of time by eliminating the external and economic influence. The awareness that the elderly population of fifty or thirty years ago can not be considered equal to that of today, leads to the need for analyses that allow to deepen the study of ageing. These analyses will make it possible to highlight the impact of increasing ageing and its sustainability.
