The financial position of older adults in the Netherlands is a heterogeneous one. Gender, living arrangement and age are among the most important determinants of household income levels, as has been illustrated with macro level data. However, the interconnectedness of current characteristics of older males and females with life-course experiences in the field of labour market participation and partner relationships, is hypothesized to be of crucial importance to explain the differences in financial opportunities and resources older adults are confronted with. To investigate the financial position of older men and women, data from the NESTOR 'Living Arrangement and Social Network' programme, based on 4494 face-to-face interviews, have been used.
