Changes coming to Social Security in 2017

Social Security Administration records show over three in five senior citizens – especially those who are not married – depend on Social Security benefits to give them at least half of their monthly income after retiring.

According to the SSA, the cost-of-living adjustment, which is based on the movements of the consumer price index for urban wage earners and clerical workers, is due for an increase of 0.3% in 2017. This development means more than 60 million Social Security recipients, two-thirds of whom are senior citizens, can expect an estimated $5 increase in January 2017. Based on the August 2016 data reviewed by the SSA, the average retired worker was taking home $1,350.64 a month, which will receive a $4.05 increase based on a 0.3% COLA.
