Examining Social Security’s Future

Professor of social work Eric Kingson was interviewed July 28 by WBUR/Boston Public Radio’s Here and Now program about the future of Social Security in the context of the federal government’s recently released predictions.

A faculty affiliate with Syracuse University’s Aging Studies Institute, Kingson is founding co-director of Social Security Works, and co-chairs the Strengthen Social Security Campaign, a coalition of over 300 national and state organizations. His scholarship examines the politics and economics of population aging, Social Security policy, the baby boomers, and cross-generational obligations. His research also examines the distributional effects of changes in retirement age.
