The Congressional Research Service (CRS) Domestic Social Policy Division (DSP) is seeking an Analyst in Social Security and related income security areas to serve the United States Congress by providing expertise on issues related to Social Security such as financing issues (including the solvency of the trust funds), the impact of the program on beneficiaries, as well as program design and operations. Work may include the design and evaluation of options for Congress that would change the Social Security program's existing benefit and financing structure.
The Analyst in Social Security will provide objective, expert public policy analysis and consultation to congressional committees, Members, and staff, including preparing objective, non-partisan, and innovative analytical studies on public policy issues of national or international significance; providing personal assistance as an expert on public policy issues throughout the legislative process, including analyzing, appraising, and evaluating legislative proposals; and plan and lead multidisciplinary team research projects and seminars.
CRS works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS has been a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill for nearly a century.
CRS is well known for analysis that is authoritative, confidential, objective and nonpartisan. Its highest priority is to ensure that Congress has immediate access to the nation's best thinking on public policy issues of interest to its Members and Committees.
