Ramsey Alwin is the President and CEO at the National Council on Aging.
A thought leader and policy advocate who has challenged outdated beliefs and sparked new solutions to address financial resilience as we age. Her work has changed the way people think about older adult poverty and economic security. Earlier in her career, she designed a new measure of economic security for older adults that better accounts for out-of-pocket health costs and busts myths surrounding senior poverty. Alwin also worked to introduce the Measuring American Poverty Act in Congress to redefine the federal poverty measure to better account for older adults’ costs of living.
Alwin holds a B.A. from Simmons University and an MBA from Georgetown University.
