Life Course Center (LCC) MinnesotaThe Minnesota Life Course Center (LCC) presents Dr. Courtney Coile – Economics, Wellesley College, speaking on “The Demography of Retirement.

Dr. Coile’s scholarly work is in the economics of aging and health, particularly retirement and disability policy.  As co-director of the National Bureau of Economic Research(NBER)’s International Social Security project, she is working with researchers in a dozen countries to explore why workers in the U.S. and other developing countries are retiring later and how much of this trend can be explained by social security reforms.  Another current project investigates the effects of disability benefits for U.S. veterans.  In past work, she has examined how recessions and stock market fluctuations affect retirement and retiree well-being and whether older individuals are healthy enough to work longer.
