CRFB Event: Decoding the Social Security Trustees Report

Jul 29, 2014

With the release of the Social Security Trustees Report, CRFB held an event examining the trustees report on July 29, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency in Washington, DC. Video of the event is below.

The event included a heavy-hitting lineup, with remarks by Social Security Chief Actuary Stephen Goss and Reps. Tom Cole (R-OK) and John Delaney (D-MD). In addition, there was a panel with experts from a wide variety of perspectives, including Goss, the American Enterprise Institute's Andrew Biggs, the Mercatus Center's Jason Fichtner, Third Way's Jim Kessler, and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities's Paul Van de Water. The panel will be moderated by Damien Paletta of The Wall Street Journal.

The event featured a highly informative discussion of the latest snapshot of Social Security's finances and what policymakers should do to reform the program.
