- What are the implications of an aging work force and of efforts to delay retirement for employer-financed health insurance and pensions?
- For state workers' compensation and unemployment programs?
- For federal disability benefits, Medicare and Medicaid?
These systems tend to be analyzed one at a time. Yet changes in one program can have unintended consequences on others and on the fortunes and misfortunes of workers and their families. This conference will review the landscape of cross-cutting issues in ensuring health and income security for an aging work force.
