Grants are available for research that will help clarify the effect of sudden external events on older people. Planning ahead, especially toward retirement, is a major focus for many people and major world events such as, war, natural disasters, and economic downturns can greatly effect long term retirement plans as well as overall health. Research is encouraged that explores the ways in which individuals have been affected by the recent financial crisis or comparable elements of past economic downturns. Beyond individual effects, the financial crisis has resulted in changes in living arrangements and household composition that may have long-term implications.

The following topics are examples of relevant research areas only:
*Labor Force Participation
*Health, Cognition, and Decision-making
*Caregiving Arrangements
*Intergenerational Transfers and Households
*Risk, Insurance, and Risk Management
*Public Finance Implications
*The Effects of Recent Policy Changes
*International Comparisons
