Social Security's Financial Outlook: The 2005 Update and a Look Back


  • Alicia H. Munnell

    () (Center for Retirement Research at Boston College)


The Trustees of the Social Security system have just issued the 2005 report. The projections used in this report are prepared by Social Security's Office of the Actuary. The Report projects the system's financial outlook under three sets of cost assumptions - high, low and intermediate. This Just the Facts focuses on the intermediate assumptions and puts this year's numbers in perspective.
