Join the D.C. Chapter of Bogleheads for a special meeting with guest speaker, Stephen C. Goss, Chief Actuary at the U.S. Social Security Administration.

(1) Will the U.S. Social Security program be forced to cut benefits in the future if nothing is changed?

(2) Without any changes in the system, when will social security benefits need to be cut and by how much?

(3) What are the different reform proposals and what are their plusses and minuses?

(4) What is most likely to happen when Social Security is reformed and when might reforms take place?

(5) What has caused the Social Security reforms of 1983 to fall short of keeping the system fully funded for 75 years until 2058? In 1983, it was expected that the reforms enacted then would keep the system fully funded for 75 years. That hasn't happened. Why not? 

(6) What are the plusses and minuses of delaying taking Social Security benefits?
