The Retirement Research Consortium (RRC) consists of three multidisciplinary centers housed in three separate institutions: the University of Michigan, Boston College, and the National Bureau of Economic Research. The RRC is funded through cooperative agreements with the Social Security Administration (SSA). SSA's Office of Research Evaluation and Statistics coordinates the consortium.
An article in the MRRC Quarterly Bulletin tells how the RRC and the Steven H. Sandell Grant Program came about. Read more about the RRC's history and research contributions in "The Retirement Research Consortium: Past, Present, and Future," in the Social Security Bulletin.
