If you don’t want to wait for the letter, there is a way to find out sooner.

To do this you need to access the message center online in your Social Security account.

You can also set it up so you get notifications on your phone when there’s an email or message for you to check.

If you do not have an account the deadline has already passed to get the COLA notice through your online account.
