Cost of Living Adjustment

SSD Cost of Living Adjustments (COLA)

Counsel from Our Experienced Reno Social Security Disability advocates

In January of every year, the benefits paid out to individuals for social security disability or supplemental security income are adjusted to stay in pace with inflation. If the social security payments that are made out to millions are not adjusted, the effects could be devastating for families and individuals alike who no longer have the financial support necessary to pay their bills or provide for food, clothing and appropriate shelter. Since these costs of living adjustments have been put into effect, these individuals have the peace-of-mind knowing that their benefits will not be outrun by inflation and they will continue to be able to provide for themselves and their loved ones.

Cost of living adjustments are generally modest, although jumps in inflation have been known to substantially increase overall benefits. The most recent cost of living adjustment applied to social security recipients was 0.3 percent in December 2016, which means that a 0.3 percent increase will be paid on benefits starting in January 2017. This adjustment first took effect in 1975 and has provided an excellent means of keeping social security disability recipients in pace with the steadily rising costs brought about by inflation.
