ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Attendees gained insights into the recently released annual Social Security Trustees Report during this Capitol Forum webinar, which featured prominent actuaries who oversee the program. They provided a deep dive into the assumptions and how residual effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and recent developments like updated data on inflation and output are reflected in their projections.
The chairperson of the Academy’s Social Security Committee facilitated the discussion and provided a summary of the trustees’ findings.
Attendees gained insight into these programs and:
- Gained an understanding of Social Security’s 2023 financial picture;
- Learned the key drivers of the financial results and the actuarial assumptions used in the projections; and
- Understood how events and economic changes since the prior year’s reports are reflected in assumptions and carried through to financial projection results.

The Academy’s Capitol Forum series provides opportunities for actuaries from across all practice areas to learn about public policy topics from policymakers and other subject matter experts who are engaged in policy development and regulatory processes. This series affords Academy members the opportunity to engage with those stakeholders to gain a unique perspective on issues of concern and interest to actuaries.
