EBRIefing - Older Americans' Debt

Tuesday, April 21, 2020 (2pm - 3pm US/Eastern)

Both the likelihood and level of debt of older Americans have increased over the past 25 years.  Carrying high levels of debt at older ages has implications for retirees’ financial security and pre-retirees’ decision to retire and claim social security, with some coping by staying in the labor market longer and delaying the receipt of  Social Security benefits. Join EBRI for a webinar that explores the consequences of this rising level of debt, and explore findings from our recent study, “The Impact of Rising Household Debt Among Older Americans”.
