Modeling Income in the Near Term (MINT) is a dynamic microsimulation model developed by the Social Security
Administration to facilitate analysis of proposals to change Social Security benefits and payroll taxes. This primer
describes MINT’s development history. It then details the model’s starting sample and the specification of its
demographic and economic aging modules, including the calculators that compute various benefits and taxes. It
also provides information about previous analyses that have relied on MINT.
