Will Pre-Funding Provide Security for Social Security? A Review of the Literature
President Clinton has proposed creating larger social security funds and investing a portion of them in the private sector. Others have suggested more radical reforms such as moving social security from a defined-benefit scheme to a defined contribution plan based on the Chilean model. These proposals are based on the goal of creating higher investment returns, which would make social security benefits easier to finance in the long run. After an extensive review of the literature, this paper reviews each of these important public policy issues in the context of recent social security policy initiatives in Canada and the United States.
