Media Memo: UW-Eau Claire Campus Source
on Social Security

TO: News/Assignment Editors

FROM: Judy Berthiaume, director, UW-Eau Claire News Bureau

DATE: March 11, 2005

SUBJECT: Campus Source on Social Security

Dr. Rodd Freitag, associate professor and chair of the political science department at UW-Eau Claire, is available to talk with the media about Social Security policy. His extensive research in public welfare policy gives him a broad understanding of the Social Security program and various reform proposals.

Overhauling Social Security continues to be among the top items on President Bush's domestic agenda. His proposal includes allowing younger workers to set up personal retirement accounts with a portion of Social Security payroll taxes that would be invested in stocks and bonds. In return, future retirees who set up those accounts would see a lower benefit check.

You can reach Dr. Rodd Freitag at (715) 836-5044 or freitard@uwec.edu.
