Elder Economic Security Initiative

The Elder Economic Security Initiative™ is national campaign dedicated to building 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 elders age in place with dignity while promoting their economic security. A key component of the initiative is the Elder Economic Security Standard™ Index (Elder Index), a measure of well-being that determines the income and supports needed for older adults to meet their basic needs.
