the Retirement Research Consortium (RRC) and Disability Research Consortium (DRC) were separate programs. Read more about the RRC's evolution and research contributions in the Social Security Bulletin or view archived materials from past annual meetings.
- Research and evaluate a wide array of topics related to Social Security's Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income programs and related federal policies;
- Disseminate information on these topics to policymakers, researchers, stakeholder organizations, and the general public; and
- Provide training and education to scholars and practitioners in research areas relevant to these topics.
To meet these goals, the centers will conduct research, prepare policy briefs and working papers, hold annual meetings, and provide research and training support for young scholars. As research is completed, the findings will be available on the centers' websites (which will be linked to from this page as they become available).
