Social Security will not go up in 2011

Monthly Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for more than 58 million Americans will not automatically increase in 2011, the Social Security Administration announced today in confirming reports earlier in the week.

The Social Security Act provides for an automatic increase in benefits if there is an increase in the Consumer Price Index from the third quarter of the last year.

As determined by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there was no increase from the third quarter of 2008, the last year a COLA was determined, to the third quarter of 2010. Therefore, under existing law, there can be no COLA in 2011.
