The former public trustees for Social Security and Medicare, Chuck Blahous and Bob Reischauer, sit down for a follow up interview on their work analyzing the financial status of the programs. Blahous and Reischauer provide a behind the scenes look at how the public trustees analyze the programs, discuss common misconceptions about how people view the trust funds, and give a preview of what could change in next year’s trustees’ reports and why public trustees should oversee that process.

The Former Public Trustees’ Project is made possible in part by a grant from the Peter G. Peterson Foundation.
