Report to the Board: 1999 Technical Panel on Assumptions and Methods

September 22, 1999

Every four years the Social Security Advisory Board commissions a panel of expert economists, demographers and actuaries to review the assumptions and methods used by the Social Security Trustees and the Office of the Chief Actuary to project the finances of the Old Age Survivors and Disability Insurance (OASDI) trust funds. The 1999 Panel was the first such panel commissioned by the Board. The views expressed in the report are exclusively those of the Technical Panel.
