Chapter 166 of the Public Laws of 2018, created the New Jersey Caregiver Task Force.  The purpose of the Task Force was to determine the availability of caregiver support services in the State, and provide recommendations for the improvement and expansion of such services. The Task Force’s final report can be found here.

This research on the personal financial health of NJ seniors was authorized by State law and includes two reports for each year in which they were produced, the New Jersey Elder Economic Security Standard™ Index (EESI) and Living Below the Line: Measuring Economic Insecurity Among New Jersey’s Retired Seniors (LBL). The two reports for each data year produced to date can be found below.
