Longevity Policy: Facing Up to Longevity Issues Affecting Social Security, Pensions, and Older Workers


  • John A. Turner

    (Pension Policy Center)


Turner argues that public policy should recognize longevity policy as a distinct policy area. Rather than separately treating issues raised by life expectancy (e.g., Social Security, pensions, older workers), a unified approach should be developed that recognizes their interrelationship.
