    Paid Leave, Livable Wage, Affordable Care: Policies That Could Avert the Next Crisis

    The health crisis of COVID-19 and subsequent effects on the U.S. economy have propelled to the spotlight the issue of financial security at the household level. Issues like paid leave, dependent care, housing instability, student loan debt, and debt collections were challenges to tens of millions of families across America long before the pandemic emerged – and if we don’t make key changes, they will dampen the economic recovery of our nation.

    Fintech for the 50+: How to Design for Low- to Moderate-Income Older Adults

    Older generations face the greatest health risks from COVID-19 and are also challenged to conduct financial management without access to in-person financial services like banking.

    Going digital is nearly a necessity for many who are sheltering in place, but can be a challenge for older adults, who often prefer handling money matters in person.

    In this webinar, sponsored by the AARP Foundation in collaboration with Chase, the Financial Health Network will share findings from its recently released report, Fintech Over 50, and illuminate the barriers that can inhibit older adults’ adoption of fintech and the opportunity for innovators to tailor products and services to their needs.
