The Elder Economic Security Initiative is an exciting project that seeks to build economic security for elders through organizing, advocacy and research.
The Elder Economic Security Initiative enables policy makers, and others to develop policies and programs to help elders make ends meet. A key component of the initiative is the Elder Economic Security Standard Index (Elder Index). The Elder Index is a geographically-based measure of income needed for elders to make ends meet.
