Heading Toward Social Security Reform - Bruce Schobel

The Social Security program is heading toward a financial crisis around 2035.

Before then, Congress must take action to allow full benefits to be paid on time.

We are seeing the beginnings of Social Security reform legislation moving through the House of Representatives this year. 

In this one-hour session, you will:

  1. Learn about Social Security's future financial problems and about the Social Security 2100 bill that is designed to solve them;
  2. Learn about the bill's provisions and the likelihood of its enactment into law;
  3. See how the bill's provisions would affect individuals, allowing for better financial planning.

Your presenter is Bruce D. Schobel, FSA, MAAA, CLU, CEBS, Consulting Actuary.
