Care for a COLA with Your Social Security?

Justin Lopez June 6th, 2022

As you might have heard, people are talking about a big bump in Social Security benefits next year.

The Senior Citizens League says payments could rise by as much as 8.6 percent in 2023, compared to an increase of 5.9 percent in 2022. That would mean an average benefit of $1,658 for the 70 million Social Security recipients on January 1.
