Each year the Social Security Trustees update the short-range (10 year) and long-range (75 year) projections for the Social Security trust funds to provide policymakers with the best information to assess Social Security’s long-range finances. The 2009 Trustees’ report will reflect updates of data, assumptions and methods since last year. The Social Security Chief Actuary will describe the results and three discussants will offer perspectives on how to frame future Social Security policy options in light of these projections.
