Every year we post a reminder here to double check your Social Security Statement… Our reminder is triggered by the annual email from the SSA (Social Security Administration) reminding US to review our statement…. Well this year our email has come really late, as in years past it was in February…. Hey Better late than never!
Break In – We will let those currently receiving SS know the COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) when it occurs in about two months – after the CPI W for the quarter is calculated – Likely low single digits this year – Ok back to our regularly programming!
New font and back ground color here! yay
