---- Acknowledgements -----

Financial support was provided by the National Institute on Aging (R01 AG17579-01), the Robert Wood Johnson through the Economic Research Initiative on the Uninsured at the University of Michigan, and the Social Security Administration through the Michigan Retirement Research Center. Bound would also like to thank the Center For Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University for support. Michael Stevens provided able research assistance. The project was made computationally feasible by our access to the supercomputer resources of SHARCNET at the University of Western Ontario which were developed with funding from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation and the Ontario Research and Development Challenge Fund. We would like to thank system administrator Gary Molenkamp and Baolai Ge for their help on the computing front. Stinebrickner has also benefitted from a time-release supported under the SHARCNET fellowship program. We have benefitted from the comments on an earlier version of this paper from seminar participants at the University of Michigan and the Canadian Econometric Study Group and especially from Peter Arcidiacono, Paul Contoyannis, Eric French, Donna Gilleskie, Steve Haider, Marteen Lindeboom, Chris Swann, an anonymous reviewer, and the editors of this Journal.
