New York Times: EBRI’s Data on Income of the Elderly

The New York Times today (June 11), in its “Economix” column, reproduces several key graphs from the June 2010 EBRI Notes, on “Income of the Elderly Population Age 65 and Over, 2008.”  The article and figures are on the Times’ website here.

The article notes that EBRI’s data reveal “one particular challenge to cutting entitlements…older Americans gets the lion’s share of their income — nearly 40 percent — from Social Security, a share that an aging populace will likely be loath to shrink.” The full EBRI Notes article is online here.
