Society has decided that individuals need financial protection against difficulties surrounding aging, poor health, and work challenges. Social insurance programs financed by workers and employers represent the decision to confront these problems as a society. Social insurance research draws on a wide variety of skills, combining data collection, analysis, economic theory, and law. The Social Insurance Research Network examines all aspects of these programs. Topics pertinent to social insurance can span across multiple research areas within SSRN including Corporate Governance and Legal Studies. Tapping into early-stage research allows better exploration of current generational topics. Get relevant titles and abstracts sent to your inbox today with a free SSRN account.
