CFS is pleased to announce the release of four training and funding opportunities supported through the Social Security Administration’s Retirement and Disability Research Consortium (RDRC). The CFS Retirement and Disability Research Center (CFS RDRC) is one of four Centers of the Consortium, all of which offer training and funding for research in retirement and disability topic areas.
The scholars’ projects investigate important topics related to labor force and employment across the life course, equity and access, and financial stability.
The U.S. Social Security Administration is funding 15 major research projects investigating retirement and disability topics surrounding racial wealth, children and families, and the economic security of older adults.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for Financial Security (CFS), as part of the Retirement and Disability Research Consortium (RDRC), has been awarded a fifth year of funding for $3.11 million from the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA).
One of just four such centers in the country supported by the SSA, the UW-Madison’s CFS focuses on the financial well-being of economically vulnerable families, households of color, older adults, people with disabilities, low-wealth households, and children.
