National Academy of Social InsuranceCHAS Fellow Marci Ybarra will be included on the National Academy of Social Insurance (NASI)’s recently announced study panel for its new project, “Designing State-Based Social Insurance Programs for Paid Leave, Affordable Child Care, and Long-Term Services and Supports.” As it stands, many Americans lack access to paid leave or long-term care insurance to protect themselves and their families in the case of child birth, adoption, and caring for the health concerns of themselves or other family members. NASI CEO William Arnone states that:

“This study panel is part of the Academy’s broader efforts to flesh out policy options that may help address these challenges, which are growing more urgent as changes in how we live and work reduce the number of families with stay-at-home caregivers, and as more and more Americans live longer than ever before.”
