The future of Social Security is central to discussions of the current budget crisis, but whether—and how—it can be reformed remains to be seen. Policymakers and analysts have offered a range of proposals, many of them based on differing demographic projections and assessments of the future solvency of the Social Security Fund. A group of leading experts will come together to discuss the current state of Social Security and how it will affect Americans’ retirement plans in the future.
