The Social Security disability program has seen a significant increase in costs and enrollment in recent years. The Trustees project that the program will be insolvent as early as 2016. This recent growth and the program’s looming insolvency have brought it increased attention and added urgency to calls for solutions. Cato senior fellow Jagadeesh Gokhale, Social Security Administration chief actuary Stephen Goss and leading scholars David Autor from MIT and Harold Pollack from the University of Chicago will provide their insights into the problems with the program’s current structure, causes of recent program growth, and prospects for reform.


Featuring Jagadeesh Gokhale, Cato Institute; David Autor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Harold Pollack, University of Chicago; and Stephen C. Goss, Social Security Administration; moderated by Michael D. Tanner, Cato Institute.
