Why support the National Academy of Social Insurance?

Employers, workers, retirees, and their families depend on our policymakers and leaders across various sectors to sustain a social insurance system that meets the needs of a 21st century American society. The National Academy of Social Insurance plays a valuable nonpartisan role in this process by increasing understanding of the current and future costs and benefits of our nation’s social insurance programs, and by working with partners to provide objective, fact-based identification, analyses, and discussions of critical issues and options.

The Academy is made up of over 1,100 of the nation’s leading experts on Social Security, Medicare, Workers’ Compensation, Unemployment Insurance, and related programs. Each year, individuals who have achieved high levels of professional distinction are elected to the Academy. Within the Academy’s Membership is a broad spectrum of disciplines and perspectives, providing our work with comprehensive technical expertise and a variety of viewpoints. The Academy’s work is overseen by a Board of Directors representing diverse sectors, including business, labor, and academia.

We fulfill our mission – to advance solutions to challenges facing the nation by increasing public understanding of how social insurance contributes to economic security – through research-based publications, expert convenings, leadership development programs, and other educational outreach.
