COLA 2023 Deemed to be the ‘Highest Since 1981’

The 8.7% increase to COLA 2023 means $144.10 more a month in Social Security on Average. The New York Times reports this latest boost was the “highest since 1981.” Millions of older Americans will gladly receive the increase for making allowances for the struggle to keep up with fast-rising living costs.

Adjusted for sky-high inflation that ruined prices around the country last year, the 8.7 percent increase benefits Social Security, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients.

However, an increase to COLA next year may not be as huge, CBNC reported. While Social Security benefits are adjusted to address inflation, there is a lag for when adjustments make a difference. The cooling of inflation will likely result in a much lower than 8.7% Social Security COLA 2024.

The Sun outlined the exact schedules of check arrivals this week: April 19, for birthdays between the 11th and 20th of the month, and; April 26, for birthdays between the 21st and 31st of the month. SSDI generally follows the same schedule. Meanwhile, SSI beneficiaries can claim on the first of every month.
