Social Security Rates of Return with "Progressive Indexation"

May 2005, Dean Baker and David Rosnick

This paper calculated rates of return for wage earners corresponding to Social Security Administration's definition of low-, medium-, high- and maximum-earners.  It finds that the "progressive indexation" proposal endorsed by President Bush would reduce the rate of returns that most workers would receive from Social Security, even with private accounts.
