In anticipation of brand new Social Security projections, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, and Third Way invite you to attend a forum on the findings of the 2013 Social Security Trustees Report and the future of the Social Security program.

The event will feature a presentation from Social Security Public Trustee Charles Blahous, as well as a bipartisan panel moderated by CNNMoney's Jeanne Sahadi.

Prior to the event, we invite you to join us for a continental breakfast, where you will be able to try your own hand at improving Social Security’s finances through a preview of "The Reformer: An Interactive Tool to Fix Social Security."
