Today's N &O Column--CLASS

Today's column focuses on the Community Living Assistance Services and Support (CLASS) provisions in the reform legislation. More later today once done with grading finals and doing final grades....

Here is recent CBO report comparing CLASS provision as passed in House (allows non working spouses to sign up) and the Senate (only workers can sign up).

Here is a new study on informal caregiving (when families care for loved ones without pay) and here is exec summary. Study done by National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP and funded by MetLife foundation. CLASS would provide some extra resources that families could use flexibly to address caregiving needs of loved ones.
