Boomers Come of Age: Covering Early Retirees and Other 50-64 Year-Olds

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act contains provisions that can help workers age 50-64 if they lose their jobs and their employer-sponsored health benefits, such as incentives for employers to maintain retiree benefits. This briefing, cosponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform and AARP, answered many questions about provisions of interests to 50-64 year olds.
