Elder Economic Security Initiative
This initiative seeks to build economic security for older adults through a multi-pronged approach that includes organizing, advocacy and research. The Initiative enables policy makers, aging advocates and others to develop policies and programs to help seniors age with dignity while promoting their economic security. A key component of the initiative is the Elder Economic Security Standard Index, a measure of well-being that determines the income and supports needed for older adults to live modestly depending on their health and life circumstances. A number of states have joined the initiative and developed their own Elder Economic Security Standard Indices; those states include California, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
