New micro evidence is presented on the accumulation response of households to Social Security. Section I reviews the theory of Social Security and life cycle savings, considering the one-for-one replacement of accumulated Social Security taxes for accumulated private savings, the retirement effect, and the effect of changes in lifetime wealth due to the yield of the Social Security system. In Section II econometric specification is used to test the theory. Section III discusses the sample selected from the NLS of Older Men aged 45-59, and Section IV presents the empirical findings.
