The purpose of this supplement is to support joint activities with the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) and Project Talent to explore the feasibility and relative cost of alternative approaches to administrative linkages to Social Security Administration records.

MiCDA has great interest in both helping HRS to learn more about the effectiveness of alternative approaches to linkage and helping Project Talent to learn about the feasibility of revitalizing this important resource for studying the influences of early life conditions on outcomes of aging.
