1 The annual net increase in the funds is the change in the assets from the end of one year to the end of the next. In fiscal year 1983, the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund borrowed money from the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund, and repaid the borrowed amounts in 1985 and 1986. For each of these years, the net increase in the funds is equal to total receipts less total expenditures, plus amounts borrowed or less amounts repaid.
