Report to the Board: 2003 Technical Panel on Assumptions and Methods

October 21, 2003

Every four years the Social Security Advisory Board commissions a panel of expert economists, demographers and actuaries to review the assumptions of the Social Security Trustees and the methods of the Office of the Chief Actuary used in projecting the finances of the Old Age Survivors and Disability Insurance (OASDI) trust funds. The 2003 Panel was the second such panel commissioned by the Social Security Advisory Board. The views contained in the report are those of the Panel.
