COLA will be announced soon
The cost of living adjustment, or COLA, will soon be released for benefit recipients. This is an annual adjustment that helps keep buying power in place for Social Security recipients.
Experts believe the payments for 2023 could be boosted by up to 8.7%. Using data from the inflation rate for July, August, and September, the Social Security Administration decides on the increase.
