On May 21st, the ACCF hosted an Economic Policy Evening, “A Conversation About Social Security–Reform Needed Now?” Business representatives from a wide range of savings and investment companies joined congressional leaders on retirement policy, and members of the media for the off-the-record discussion.
Mark J. Warshawsky, Ph.D., Deputy Commissioner, Retirement and Disability Policy for The Social Security Administration and Henry Aaron, Ph.D., Bruce and Virginia MacLaury Senior Fellow in the Economic Studies Program at the Brookings Institution offered their retirement policy expertise in the discussion.
Congressional members included Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Representatives Kevin Brady (R-TX), Jim Costa (D-CA), Ron Estes (R-KS) , Drew Ferguson IV (R-GA), Hank Johnson (D-GA), John B. Larson (D-CT) and Tom Reed (R-NY).
