Supersymmetry plays a fundamental role in the radiative stability of many inflationary models.  I will explain how supersymmetry and naturalness require additional scalar degrees of freedom with masses on the order of the inflationary Hubble scale.  These fields lead to distinctive non-gaussian signatures that may be observable in both the CMB and large scale structure.
