SSASIM output file .SSA

 --- .SSA file contains program solvency statistics for OASI, DI, and
          OASDI trust funds for each scenario.
  
 NOTE: trailing . character is:
       r for OASI, d for DI, and c for combined OASDI
 NOTE: cost/income rates & actuarial balance are % of taxable payroll
 (nabal.) negative of actuarial balance (as defined in Trustees Report)
 (scrdb.) summarized cost rate: DB benefits only (as defined in TR)
 (sirdb.) summarized income rate: DB benefits only (as defined in TR)
 (pabal.) actuarial balance (as defined in TR): pabal. = -nabal.
 NOTE: pabal. = sirdb. - scrdb.
 NOTE: The following trust fund ratio and balance statistics refer to
 . . . only the years included in the actuarial test period defined
 . . . by the RUN.f_test_yr and RUN.n_test_yrs (typically 75) fields.
 NOTE: Trustees' Report defines trust fund ratio as balance at
 . . . beginning of year divided by that year's outgo
 (endfr.) ending trust fund ratio (uses Trustees' Report definition)
 (maxfr.) maximum trust fund ratio (uses Trustees' Report definition)
 (maxyr.) year in which maximum trust fund ratio is attained
 (yrsnb.) number of years in which trust fund balance is negative
 (fyrnb.) first calendar year in which trust fund balance is negative
 (yrpnb.) number of yrs in which tf bal is positive after being neg
 (pvtxe.) pv of taxable earnings over actuarial test period where pv is
          calculated using trust fund's asset returns as discount rates
          (expressed in trillons of RUN.year_zero dollars)
          [this is denominator of the summarized cost rate]
