March 26 Heller panel to address the new economic (in)security of seniors
Recent fundamental changes in the lives of older Americans make it more difficult for seniors to enter retirement with economic security and remain economically secure throughout retirement. The Institute on Assets and Social Policy (IASP) has issued a new report analyzing seniors' long-term financial stability.
A distinguished panel will discuss the implications of the report's findings for Massachusetts seniors on March 26, 4 to 6 p.m. in the Zinner Forum at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University. The event is sponsored by IASP and the Heller School concentration in aging.
The panelists include:
- Jame Callahan, former Massachusetts secretary of elder affairs and professor emeritus of social welfare policy
- Ann L. Hartstein, executive director, Massachusetts Association of Older Americans
- Walter Leutz, associate professor of the history of social welfare policy and services
- Tatjana Meschede, research director, IASP
- Thomas Shapiro, director, IASP, and Pokross Professor of Law and Social Policy at the Heller School
