Nearly 23 million older adults in the U.S. are economically insecure—either living in poverty or one “bad break” away from it, and lacking the resources to support their basic health, nutrition, housing, and daily needs.

As policymakers debate proposals that could scale back Medicare and Social Security benefits, this population may experience even more setbacks to achieving financial stability.

Learn about progress to date and lessons learned from a new holistic approach to economic security that involves a new way of thinking about service delivery at the community level.

Also, discover EconomicCheckUp®, a new online consumer tool from NCOA that can empower low-income seniors to assess their financial needs and seek assistance with important services related to budgeting, money management, credit and debt, employment assistance, and access to community resources.

  • Learn about comprehensive economic casework and service delivery focused on moving low-income older adults toward economic security
  • Explore EconomicCheckUp®, a new online consumer tool from NCOA that can empower low-income seniors to assess their needs and seek assistance
