Report to the Board: 2011 Technical Panel on Assumptions and Methods

October 22, 2011

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 2011 Technical Panel on Assumptions and Methods was the fourth such panel commissioned by the Board.
