Publication Title: Urban Institute
Publish Date: March 12, 2021

Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that more adults age 65 and older left the labor force in 2020 than in any year since the US began tracking such information in 1948. Many will likely never work again, jeopardizing their immediate and long-term financial security. Efforts to make the workplace safer during the pandemic, to better prepare older workers for today’s economy, and to root out ageism could help the older adults who want to work remain employed.
