Erin Cottle Hunt, assistant professor of economics, was featured in a May 10 CNBC article about her recent research on shortcomings with Social Security benefits.

Specifically, Cottle Hunt’s research looks at Social Security benefits that are specific to couples and if they’re good for society and single-earner couples.

“It’s really bad news for the wife if she has not worked and the husband dies and he isn’t around to get Social Security benefits anymore,” she told CNBC.
