Social Security: Budget, Policy, and the Way Forward

ADA Education Fund Hosts Congressional Briefing on Social Security:

 Budget, Policy, and the Way Forward

Thursday, October 27, 2011

12:00 noon to 1:30 PM

Senate Visitors’ Center 212-10

Washington, D.C.

Another in a series of monthly Congressional Briefings, the ADA Education Fund will host a panel of policy experts on Capitol Hill for a discussion on Social Security:  Budget, Policy and the Way Forward.


A distinguished panel will discuss the budget and policy aspects of what is arguably the most important economic support program in the nation, Social Security.  Its size and scope has made it the most popular, and yet also the most targeted program in the nation’s budget discussions.


As the “Super Committee” begins the public phase of its discussions and its deadline approaches, it is critical that policymakers consider all the implications of any potential changes to Social Security.  This is an opportunity for Congressional staff and others to hear from experts and to engage in a conversation about this issue at a critical time.


Confirmed speakers include Nancy J. Altman, Co-Director, Social Security Works; Rich Fiesta, Director of Government and Political Affairs, Alliance for Retired Americans; and Judy Lear, National Chair and Acting Executive Director, Gray Panthers.
