According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the country's population aged 65 and over is projected to be more than 83 million in 2050 -- almost double the estimated population of 43 million in 2012. This Forum will examine how the growing, greying labor force impacts workplaces and economic and health security, including retirement savings efforts and systems such as Social Security and Medicare.

General Session at the American Planners Association Conference in Boston, MA

Featuring AARP/FPA Social Security Research Results – What role does Social Security play in pre-retiree/retiree retirement planning?

This panel discussion will explore the results of this new, original research and delve into the key takeaways to help planners and their clients address this ultra-important issue in retirement planning. CNBC’s Sharon Epperson will moderate and the panel will feature Dave Yeske, CFP® – Director of Financial Planning and Distinguished Adjunct Professor at Golden Gate University and Practitioner Editor of the Journal of Financial Planning; Thomas L. Hungerford, Ph.D. – Associate Commissioner, Office of Retirement Policy at the Social Security Administration; and Dr. Debra Whitman, Ph.D. – Chief Public Policy Officer at AARP.

Care Coordination in Managed Long-Term Services and Supports

Older people and adults with disabilities, particularly those with care needs, can benefit from care coordination. Care coordinators are typically nurses or social workers who can help with tasks such as monitoring chronic health conditions, connecting them to social supports, conducting assessments, and writing plans of care. The field is changing rapidly as many states move to or expand Medicaid managed care for its populations needing long-term services and supports (LTSS). Details
