Don’t miss this opportunity for an in-depth explanation of the trustees’ projections of Social Security’s long-term finances. Hear from an authoritative source: Stephen C. Goss, Chief Actuary of the Social Security Administration. How has the weak economy affected Social Security’s long-term projections and finances? What actions can strengthen the Disability Insurance trust fund in the next few years? Can we afford Social Security in coming decades? What options do policymakers have to ensure that Social Security remains adequate and secure?

  • Virginia P. Reno, Vice President for Income Security Policy, NASI

Moderator: Thomas N. Bethell, Senior Fellow, NASI
