This Congressional Budget Office (CBO) study first provides an overview of Social Security and discusses some criteria for evaluating proposals to change the system. It then presents a variety of options for changing the Social Security system and analyzes the financial and distributional effects of those options—that is, how they would affect Social Security’s finances and how they would alter the benefits paid to people in various earnings categories and people born in various decades.
