The case studies of this paper are representative demographic indicators, as well as the parameters of labour markets structure, that address the issue of population aging. A special part of the analysis refers to the study of specific determinants in the segment of the elderly population (pensioners), in order to create a clearer picture of their possible socio-economic potential. The average age of the population of Serbia in the past five decades has increased by over ten years – which is an alarming fact that points out the issue of aging of the population of Serbia as the primary long-term problem. Consequentially, this actualizes the idea of assessing the working potential of the elderly population and the possibility of their activation, where the targeted group of pensioners age from 51 to 65 years. Therefore, the goal of this paper is to advise on the reactivation of the oldest population, based on the analysis of demographic indicators and anticipation of market trends, and thus contrive their economic potential in the labour market in Serbia
