SOCIAL SECURITY COLA 1.5% for 2014

The Social Security Administration announced this fall the cost of living increase for recipients of Social Security Retirement, Survivors & Disability Insurance Benefits (RSDI) as well as Supplemental Security Income Benefits (SSI), is 1.5%. This is welcome news for Michigan residents.

 

Individual SSI recipients will receive $721 per month. The SSI benefit for 2013 was $710. Couples on SSI will receive $1,028.

 

The maximum monthly RSDI benefit will be $2,642 while the average benefit for a retired worker will be $1,294 and the average benefit for a retired couple will be $2,111.

 

The average monthly RSDI benefit for a disabled worker will be $1,148.
