  1. Need to see if there is anything else there is to help me get more money. I only get $700 a month and I am raising 2 of my grandkids we are having a hard time making it.

    • Hi Wayne, thanks for using our blog. The 1.3 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) will begin with benefits payable to more than 64 million Social Security beneficiaries in January 2021. Increased payments to more than 8 million SSI beneficiaries will begin on December 31, 2020. (Note: some people receive both Social Security and SSI benefits) We hope this is helpful!

  3. Why are you letting people’ Piggy back’ and use other people’s social security numbers? This is all your fault and identity theft is rampant especially by those who don’t need to but do it just to screw people up. The law firm of Hunter allen in ATL GA sells Social security numbers and you know it and you don’t have a degree anywhere and are not on a bad ID but can’t even type a letter but Ginsburg told you to let people steal ss # just to screw people up and I am going to make it stop. What Say Yee.

  4. Question I am now receiving my SS benefit and am still working. I pay into FICA and Medicare. When I quite working will they go back and re look @ my history and do any adjusting to my benefit since I am still paying in.

    • Hi Joy, thanks for using our blog. Each year we review the records for all Social Security recipients who work. If your latest year of earnings turns out to be one of your highest years, we refigure your benefit and pay you any increase due. This is an automatic process, and benefits are paid in December of the following year. For example, in December 2020, you should get an increase for your 2019 earnings if those earnings raised your benefit. The increase would be retroactive to January 2020. Check out our web page Receiving Benefits While Working for additional details.
