Welcome to our team's newest addition - The EESI Blog!

This blog serves to add a new aspect to our National Elder Econcomic Security Initiative™ program. As the Initiative continues to grow, our goal is to maintain its well-roundedness and continue to establish new outlets and community connections.

The Initiative offers a new perspective and a new metric for measuring income adequacy – The Elder Economic Security Standard™ Index. The Index provides geographically-based data on what it takes to make ends meet when you are 65 and older. Most recently, WOW has taken a look at how the average Social Security income and other sources of retirement income, including pensions, measure up the Index. To learn more, take a look at our brief titled, “Single Women’s Retirement Income Falls Short…”

Consider this blog an invitation to learn, discuss and participate in the Initiative and related issues. Please check it often, as we will have guest writers, event updates, polls and surveys, and "food for thought"!
