The main objective of this paper is to show the changes in the rate of unemployment of people in the old age in selected Central and Eastern European countries in the years 2007 - 2016. This phenomenon was shown both from the point of view of general population and gender. Additional analyzes were subjected to the phenomenon of unemployment in Poland. The aging of the population of European countries has also been analyzed, which is important for the professional activation of this group of people. The hypothesis of this work is that the level of unemployment in the elderly has deteriorated as a result of the economic crisis but after that has not improved in all analyzed countries. After the crisis for some countries , the situation started to improve (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia), while other countries fluctuated (Estonia, Croatia, Romania). The conclusion is that the unemployment rate for women of a mature age is lower than for men.
