Can We Fix Social Security? A Discussion with Sen. Cassidy
This event has passed.
This year’s Social Security Trustees Report confirms the urgent need for Congress to enact comprehensive Social Security reform or risk jeopardizing the future of America’s retirees. It’s now projected that the program’s primary trust fund will deplete its reserves in 2033, one year earlier than last year’s projection, at which time all beneficiaries will see their benefits cut by nearly 25%.
Join the Bipartisan Policy Center and the Funding Our Future coalition as we speak with the Social Security Administration’s Chief Actuary Stephen Goss about the program’s solvency challenge. BPC Vice President and Chief Economist Jason Fichtner will also welcome Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) to discuss the legislative landscape and bipartisan solutions needed to sustain and strengthen the program for decades to come.

- Stephen Goss | Chief Actuary, Social Security Administration
