For the past five years, WOW’s Elder Economic Security Initiative (Elder Initiative) has been building economic security for retirees and those aging out of the workforce. WOW works in Washington, DC to influence federal policy and assists 17 lead State Partners’ efforts to improve state and local policy. Elder Initiative goals include: 1) raising awareness of elder financial needs; 2) building State Partner capacity and influence; 3) creating lasting change on the local, state and federal levels; 4) growing the Initiative and its influence; and 5) documenting and sustaining effective Initiative and related efforts to help seniors. A key component of the Initiative is the Elder Economic Security Standard™ Index (Elder Index), a measure of the income older adults require to meet their basic needs.
In this new phase of the project, WOW will focus intensively on institutionalizing the economic security framework and the Elder Index in direct service and public policy in New Jersey and Massachusetts. WOW will also continue to support state partners and work to expand the Elder Initiative network.
