Today’s 2.8% cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) increase is good news for seniors, survivors & people w/ disabilities who have earned Social Security benefits. There are over 3 million Social Security beneficiaries over the age of 65 in Texas that depend on Social Security, and for many of them, Social Security is the basis of their monthly income.
As medical costs continue to grow, it’s critical that our seniors have the resources they need and depend on. We must continue to strengthen and expand Social Security to better reflect the real expenses seniors pay daily.
BREAKING! More than 67 million Americans will receive a 2.8% increase in their monthly Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits in 2019. Check our #SocialSecurityMatters blog later this morning for more info: http://ow.ly/BjRP30mbRzN #COLA #2019COLA
