SSA ANNOUNCES COLA for 2021

The Social Security Administration has announced a cost of living increase (COLA) of 1.3% for the 70 million Americans receiving Social Security Retirement, Survivors and Disability insurance benefits, as well as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits in 2021.

Social Security benefits are adjusted annually when the cost of living, as measured by the Department of Labor’s Consumer Price Index (CPI-W), increases.  The index for the 3rd quarter of 2020 was measured against the 3rd quarter index for 2019 to calculate the increase.

The maximum Social Security benefit for 2021 will increase from $3,011 per month to $3,148 per month.  The SSI benefit for an individual will rise from $783 per month to $794 per month.  SSI benefits for a married couple will rise from $1,175 per month to $1,191 per month.

The average SS Disability benefit will rise from $1,261 per month to $1,277 per month while the average SS Retirement benefit will rise from $1,523 per month to $1,543 per month.
