Social Security Recipients Might Actually Get to Keep Their 2023 Raise

Social Security Recipients Might Actually Get to Keep Their 2023 Raise

One of the biggest advantages of Social Security is that its payments get annual cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs). 2022's COLA boosted benefits by 5.9% this year, and early estimates make it likely that the COLA that will take effect in early 2023 will be between 8% and 9%. What's even better news is that, unlike in 2022, many Social Security recipients are more likely to see the full amount of their cost-of-living adjustment actually hit their bank accounts.
