Like in many communities, transfer payments are an important income source in Anderson, Indiana. Anderson was once the home of ten General Motors plants. These plants are now closed; approximately 14,000 retirees from these plants reside in the greater Anderson, Indiana, area.
This study is a first attempt to assess the long-term impact that these pensions will have on the Anderson, Indiana, area.
