COLA Draws Attention

I find it amusing that this blog is getting a large number of hits from people searching for "Cost of Living Adjustment" or "COLA." Social Security recipients are very interested in what the COLA will be for this year.

If I knew, I would tell you. I can say that inflation has been relatively high this year, so the COLA should be relatively high as well, probably about 6%. Keep checking back.

Once the COLA figure is released, it will be posted here promptly. Last year, the COLA numbers were released on October 25.
