We will have economic security as long as we live.
Economic security is essential to living and aging well, but retirement income is being outpaced by the rising costs of housing, health, and care. As a result, many middle-income Californians are experiencing downward economic mobility with age and Californians over age 50 are now the fastest growing population of homeless people in many parts of the state, with the median age of the homeless expected to rise.
California will pursue Affording Aging through three data-driven strategies:
Strategy A: End Homelessness for Older Adults
Strategy B: Income Security as We Age
Strategy C: Protection from Poverty & Hunger
