Unemployment Insurance and Older Workers in the United States

Source: Charlotte Muller and Oleg Volkov, International Longevity Center, Issue Brief, June 2008

From the summary:
People are living longer and healthier lives at the same time that layoffs are increasing and pension plans are being curtailed. As the era of longevity progresses, unemployment among older Americans is likely to be a growing problem. In addition to the traditional male workforce, a larger number of older women will have had substantially more work experience than was historically true. Among women without spousal support (the single, widowed, and divorced), many will find that they must remain employed if they are to meet their financial needs.
