  1. Is everyone enjoying the great COLA raise you got in your stocking this year? Or did you notice the FLIM FLAM and you really did not get one even though THEY said you would.

    • I wish Congress would give us back $5 an hour that they keep giving themselves a raise whenever they freaking bastards don’t need it they take advantage of the taxpayers

      • Get the federal government to pay all profit to those that
        Worked for
        It and owned the propertY
        and do away with troubled
        Charities that are ruining people.

  2. I am applying for Dissability because I have Heart Trouble and I have already suffered a stroke. I have worked 42 years out of my life. I started on 1977.

  3. I thought the 12 Sites of Social Security was very creative and clever…well done! I also hope you hear, at least sometimes, what great work you do. Both Social Security and Medicare do an amazing job especially considering the many, many people using the services and the complexities of the work. Once again, well done!

    • Thank you Chris! We value your opinion of us and look forward to many more years of serving you in the future.

    • Amen. I totally agree with you Chris. I would be living in the streets without my SSID. I’m so grateful to live in the Great USA. Just look at all the countries that don’t help their citizens at all. It’s just so sad.

    • Yes, yes, yes and I can't wait. I love evhetyring you mentioned! Miracle on 34th St. was awesome on the big screen last night 🙂 My trees are being put up tomorrow however it will take a few weeks to decorate them!!!

  4. Even though we have all these up & downs with our govt. & our SS, Medicare, Medicaid & practically NO COLA this year, plus the increase in the Medicare part B for the coming year, nonetheless we take 5 minutes to wish everyone around us & in this blog :

    • &qquu;We?&toot; The folks at Samson Blinded, JTF and Virtual Medinat Yehudah don't agree with your "we". Nor do the gals at Women in Green. Or the fellows in the black hats who hang out with R. Wolpe.Pick one set and stick with it. There is no "we" left in Israel. The Jews must win and the Israelis must lose, or else we are all dead men.

    • Thank you Ms. Carborne! Your thoughts are important to us and we’re pleased when feedback is positive. Happy Holidays!

  5. I don’t know why they called it a raise I will be receiving the same amount and I mean exactly the same amount I have been receiving for the past four years. While I have been getting on less my congressman and my senator have been getting raise after raise while they do less and less for me and my fellow men. I do pray that Mr Trump means it when he says that there should be a limit to the time that this people should be in Washington. They should go for a visit not for a stay or make a home there.

  6. Thank you and your dedicated staff for providing critical information in an easy to read (and access) format. Your dedication and hard work is appreciated. God bless you all and enjoy a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year filled with joy, great health, prosperity and continued professional success.

  9. Anybody see Ben Stein whining on CNBC last night about how week Bernanke is but that it is good he finally stood up to the Hedge Funds, the spsralutoce, yada yada yada. Like they are the reason stocks are in free fall. Has nothing to do with a recession. All a bunch of guys looking at computer screens manipulating it all. I guess those guys don’t work on days the market rises.

  10. I’m in the process of applying online for social security benefits. There is a question, “when do you want to start receiving your social security benefits?”. I’m not sure if I’m to reply with the month in which I want to receive my first check or the prior month that would establish my benefit amount. In my case, I want to receive the benefit amount due me when I am 64.5 years old which would be on 3/2/17. So to answer the question would I elect 3/17 or 4/17?

    • Thank you for your question and congratulations in your retirement! Social Security benefits are paid the month after they are due. So, for instance, if you want your benefits to begin with the month of March, you will receive your first benefit payment in April. We hope this helps.

  11. My social security benefits had been stoped depositing to my account in my bank sience February 2012 till now . Please check my case

    • For security reasons, we do not have access to personal records in this venue. You should contact the local Social Security office or call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213, Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. for further assistance and an explanation. Thanks.

  12. When someone dies and you stop SS why don’t you automatic send the death benefit at that time?. You are quick to take back the payment that you paid that month so why not put in the $250 benefit

  13. trying to report my brothers passing and have spent much time on the phone on hold, trying to let someone know, so that his benefits will be stopped, cant seem to get thru how can I accomplish this without spending half a day on phone, we need to close his Bank Acct.

    • We are sorry for your loss, Betty. In most cases, the funeral home will report the person’s death to Social Security. If you want them to do that, you will need to give the deceased’s Social Security Number to the funeral director so they can make the report.
      To be eligible for a Social Security benefit payment, a person has to live throughout the entire month. If the deceased was receiving Social Security benefits, you must return the benefit received for the month of death or any later months. Keep in mind that Social Security benefits are paid the month after they are due. For example, if the person dies in September, you must return the benefit paid in October. Generally, the financial institution will return Social Security checks upon receiving notification of the beneficiary’s death.
      When calling our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213, you will experience a shorter wait time if you call later during the day or later in the week. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. We hope this information helps.
