Around the world, social-security systems are running out of money. A group of researchers led by Olivia S. Mitchell, Wharton Professor of Insurance/Risk Management & Applied Economics/Policy, and Director of the Pension Research Council, set out to find new ways to get people to delay claiming benefits and work longer.

“The New Insurance Supervisory Landscape: Implications for Insurance and Pensions”

Author: Peter A. Fisher
