Work of Cigolle, Ofstedal et al. cited in Forbes story on frailty risk among the elderly

a PSC In The News reference, 2014

"Frailty Risk -- More than Just Long-Term Care and Health Care Expenses" - Forbes. 06/25/2014.

Retirement planning should include consideration of how frailty -- or deteriorating mental or physical health -- may impact security. Citing work by Christine Cigolle and Mary Beth Ofstedal, this story says that nearly a third of people age 65 and older suffer from some degree of frailty, which can spell unanticipated financial risk to a retirement plan. Several recommendations are made to lessen the risk of frailty and, more important, to lessen its impact.
