Episode Description

Today, the average person in the United States lives nearly ten years longer than he or she would have 50 years ago. What does that extra decade at the end of life look like? What are the implications of a longer life span on families, the health care system, retirement planning, government benefits and more? Now that retirement lasts not just a few years but is a whole new life phase extending a decade or two (or three!), how should middle-aged adults prepare for this era of life? Companies, government agencies and individuals are making changes to adjust but there’s more work to do to ensure that seniors live healthier, more enriching lives than in the past. Join Debra Whitman, Executive Vice President of Policy and Strategy at the AARP and host Kate Ebner on June 23 to dig deep into the future of aging in America.
