    ``(2)(A) The Managing Trustee shall determine the annual surplus

in--
            ``(i) marketable interest-bearing obligations of the United 
        States or obligations guaranteed as to both principal and 
        interest by the United States, purchased on original issue or 
        at the market price, or
            ``(ii) certificates of deposit in insured depository 
        institutions (as defined in section 3(c)(2) of the Federal 
        Deposit Insurance Act).
    ``(B) For purposes of this paragraph, the `annual surplus' for 
either of the Trust Funds as of the end of a fiscal year is the excess 
(if any) of--
            ``(i) the sum of--
                    ``(I) in the case of the Federal Old-Age and 
                Survivors Insurance Trust Fund, the amounts 
                appropriated to such Trust Fund under paragraphs (3) 
                and (4) of subsection (a) for the fiscal year,
                    ``(II) in the case of the Federal Disability 
                Insurance Trust Fund, the amounts appropriated to such 
                Trust Fund under paragraphs (1) and (2) of subsection 
                (b) for the fiscal year, and
                    ``(III) in either case, the amount appropriated to 
                such Trust Fund under section 121(e) of the Social 
                Security Amendments of 1983 for the fiscal year, and 
                any amounts otherwise credited to or deposited in such 
                Trust Fund under this title for the fiscal year, over
            ``(ii) the amounts paid or transferred from such Trust Fund 
        during the fiscal year.''.
    (b) Effective Date.--The amendments made by this section shall 
apply with respect to annual surpluses as of the end of fiscal years 
beginning on or after October 1, 2004.

SEC. 3. PROTECTION OF THE SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUNDS FROM THE PUBLIC 
              DEBT LIMIT.

    (a) Protection of Trust Funds.--Notwithstanding any other provision 
of law--
            (1) no officer or employee of the United States may--
                    (A) delay the deposit of any amount into (or delay 
                the credit of any amount to) the Federal Old-Age and 
                Survivors Insurance Trust Fund or the Federal 
                Disability Insurance Trust Fund or otherwise vary from 
                the normal terms, procedures, or timing for making such 
                deposits or credits, or
                    (B) refrain from the investment in public debt 
                obligations of amounts in either of such Trust Funds,
        if a purpose of such action or inaction is to not increase the 
        amount of outstanding public debt obligations, and
            (2) no officer or employee of the United States may 
        disinvest amounts in either of such Trust Funds which are 
        invested in public debt obligations if a purpose of the 
        disinvestment is to reduce the amount of outstanding public 
        debt obligations.
    (b) Protection of Benefits and Expenditures for Administrative 
Expenses.--
            (1) In general.--Notwithstanding subsection (a), during any 
        period for which cash benefits or administrative expenses would 
        not otherwise be payable from the Federal Old-Age and Survivors 
        Insurance Trust Fund or the Federal Disability Insurance Trust 
        Fund by reason of an inability to issue further public debt 
        obligations because of the applicable public debt limit, public 
        debt obligations held by such Trust Fund shall be sold or 
        redeemed only for the purpose of making payment of such 
        benefits or administrative expenses and only to the extent cash 
        assets of such Trust Fund are not available from month to month 
        for making payment of such benefits or administrative expenses.
            (2) Issuance of corresponding debt.--For purposes of 
        undertaking the sale or redemption of public debt obligations 
        held by the Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund 
        or the Federal Disability Insurance Trust Fund pursuant to 
        paragraph (1), the Secretary of the Treasury may issue 
        corresponding public debt obligations to the public, in order 
        to obtain the cash necessary for payment of benefits or 
        administrative expenses from such Trust Fund, notwithstanding 
        the public debt limit.
            (3) Advance notice of sale or redemption.--Not less than 3 
        days prior to the date on which, by reason of the public debt 
        limit, the Secretary of the Treasury expects to undertake a 
        sale or redemption authorized under paragraph (1), the 
        Secretary of the Treasury shall report to each House of the 
        Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States 
        regarding the expected sale or redemption. Upon receipt of such 
        report, the Comptroller General shall review the extent of 
        compliance with subsection (a) and paragraphs (1) and (2) of 
        this subsection and shall issue such findings and 
        recommendations to each House of the Congress as the 
        Comptroller General considers necessary and appropriate.
    (c) Public Debt Obligation.--For purposes of this section, the term 
``public debt obligation'' means any obligation subject to the public 
debt limit established under section 3101 of title 31, United States 
Code.
