The Social Security Annual Statistical Supplement, 2013 is now available.
The Supplement includes more than 240 statistical tables providing comprehensive data on programs administered by the Social Security Administration. These are Social Security (Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) ) programs and the separate Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.
Information includes beneficiary counts, benefit amounts, trust fund status, program summaries and legislative histories to help you understand these programs.
In addition to Social Security administered programs, information is presented about the major health care programs, Medicare and Medicaid, and other social insurance programs, including workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance, temporary disability insurance, Black Lung benefits and veterans’ benefits.
With so much information available, it is likely that some part of the Supplement will interest you.
