2013 TIAA Paul A. Samuelson Award Ceremony
The TIAA Paul A. Samuelson Award For Outstanding Scholarly Writing On Lifelong Financial Security, named in honor of the Nobel Prize-winning economist and former CREF Trustee, recognizes economic research that promotes Americans’ financial well-being. Since first being awarded in 2000, the Samuelson Award has become the premier acknowledgement of excellence in research on financial security.
Our independent panel of judges gave the 2013 award to John Chalmers, University of Oregon, and Jonathan Reuter, Boston College, for their paper “How Do Retirees Value Life Annuities? Evidence from Public Employees,” which examines demand for life annuity payments by a large sample of retirees.
The award was presented at the annual meeting of the Allied Social Science Associations, January 3, 2014, in Philadelphia, PA.
