The Center for Financial Security Retirement and Disability Research Center wrapped up our first year as a center in the consortium. We are releasing research briefs and working papers of the nine research projects funded in FY2019.
e University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Financial Security Retirement and Disability Research Center (CFS RDRC) is an applied research program which develops evidence that can assist policymakers, the public, and the media in understanding issues in Social Security, retirement, and disability policy, especially related to economically vulnerable populations. The CFS RDRC incorporates diversity of viewpoints and disciplines, develops diverse emerging scholars and generates research findings that are used in policy and practice. To this end, CFS has released a call for applications for the JSIT 2020 Summer Workshop and the IRP Extramural Small Grant.
