The Effects of Differential Income Replacement and Mortality on U.S. Social Security Redistributions

We study redistributions via the United States Social Security retirement system for cohorts of men born during the second half of the 20th century. Our focus is on redistributions across race and education groups. The cohorts we study are younger than cohorts studied in previous, similar research, and thus more exposed to recent increases in earnings inequality.
