A publication of the Pension Research Council of the Wharton School, this volume is a revision and updating of the third edition published in 1985 under the auspices of the McCahan Foundation. It provides a thorough factual description of the various social insurance and allied programs now operating in the US which deal with retirement, disability, survivor, and health benefits. The emphasis is both on the general principles underlying the development of the systems and their present status and on the general social and economic results developing from them. The greatest emphasis is on the largest program and the one that affects the most people Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) and Medicare, sometimes referred to in combination as "social security."
