Social Security Administration Grant Boosts BC Retirement Center

Social Security Administration Grant Boosts BC Retirement Center

The Boston College Center for Retirement Research has received an $1.8 million grant from the Social Security Administration for fiscal year 2000-01, the third year of a five-year grant that began in 1998, when the center opened.

Drucker Professor in Management Sciences Alicia H. Munnell, the center's director, said the amount - the center's largest award and almost double the amount scheduled - "reflects the Social Security Administration's enthusiasm for our activities."

Affiliated with the Carroll School of Management and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the center includes a network of retirement policy experts at Boston College and affiliated institutions. Its purpose is to fund and disseminate research on retirement policy issues, help to train the next generation of scholars and broaden access to top-quality data.
