The National Academy of Social Insurance (NASI) recently announced the addition of 72 new scholars including CEPR’s Director of Domestic Policy, Nicole Woo.  Members of the Academy are nominated in recognition of their substantial and ongoing contributions to the field of Social insurance. They are recognized as leading experts in the fields of Social Security, Medicare, health coverage, unemployment insurance and related social insurance and assistance programs. Nicole’s work, like that of other members, is noteworthy for improving the quality of research, administration or policy-making in one or more of these fields.

As Larry Atkins, the president of NASI said in a press release, “Members are at the heart of NASI. We expect our new members will be engaged – many of them prominently and from a variety of perspectives – on fundamental issues of the role of social insurance programs and their demographic and financial challenges in the next decade. We look forward to recognizing, using, and sustaining their expertise and enthusiasm.  It is with great pleasure that we welcome them.”

In addition to reports on raising the Social Security payroll tax cap and the effects of changing the way in which the Social Security COLA is calculated, Nicole has educated the public and policy makers on social insurance in a wide range of venues from radio shows to panel discussions and briefings.
