Social Security Disability bonus on the way? October 19, 2010 For the second year in a row, there will be no Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) to monthly Social Security and/or Supplemental Security Income Benefits. This means monthly Social Security and/or Supplemental Security Income benefits will remain the same for 2011. Social Security and SSI benefits increase automatically each year if there is an increase in the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W). Bureau of Labor Statistics data determined there was no increase in the CPI-W. To make up for no COLA, there is a push in Congress to give Social Security recipients a one-time payment of $250. We’ll let you know if this passes. Give us a call if we can answer your social security questions. Our social security lawyers are standing by and ready to speak with you.
