For the third time in 40 years, Social Security recipients will not receive a cost of living increase. While last year’s increase was small – 1.7 percent – any increase is meaningful. Social Security has once again asked recipients to make do with less, and that is not acceptable.
The upcoming year is crucial for Social Security as many politicians are looking to cut benefits. Help protect Social Security by contacting your representatives.
