Respectfully submitted, Barbara Pollock On June 26, 1980, I attended a Social Security Symposium in which they explained in detail the workings of Social Security. We had a speaker on Financing, Changing Roles of Men and Women, and Changing Work and Retirement Patterns. After they spoke, we were divided into groups so we could express our views. My group was Changing Roles of Men and Women, but we talked about all of the issues. On Financing, we were told it was a pay- as-you-go system, a contributory social insurance designed to protect workers and their families against loss of earnings upon retirement, severe disability or death. Taxes collected each year axe Intended to be approximately equal to the expenditures during the year plus allowing for the maintenance of the trust funds. In Changing Roles for Men and Women, we found the traditional roles of lifelong home- maker and lifelong paid worker were no longer as typical; rather, there is a growing diversity of roles. The labor force of married women has grown from 17% in 1940 to about 47% in 1977 and is still growing. The increase in the divorce rate has contributed to the growing diversity of family roles and work patterns since most divorced women must work to support themselves and family. A demographic factor for social security is fertility. The trend in birth rates has not been stable in this country so it is hard to tell how to operate a social security system as our birth rate is based on the level of economic prosperity, the cost of child bearing/rearing relative to disposible income and ,couples' outlook toward the future. The long-range financial condition of the social security program will be determined by rates of fertility, mortality, immigration, labor force participation, marriage, unemployment, inflation, trends in retirement, and other economic, demographic and actuarial conditions.
