Our Mission

Transamerica Institute® is a nonprofit, private foundation dedicated to identifying, researching and educating the public about retirement, health coverage, and other relevant financial issues facing Americans today. It is comprised of two research centers: Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies® (TCRS) and Transamerica Center for Health Studies® (TCHS). Its mission is to help educate and empower people to make informed decisions about important matters that can improve their health and wealth.

Transamerica Institute’s research and outreach is based on the premise that there is no such thing as an “average American” and that all Americans deserve the opportunity to secure their futures through education and financial empowerment.
