Social Security, Veterans Disability Recipients to See 1.5 Percent COLA Increase in Benefits for 2014
Date:10/30/2013

Belleville, Ill. (PRWEB) October 30, 2013

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) recipients and veterans disability beneficiaries will see a slight increase of 1.5 percent in their monthly benefit in 2014.

The standard Medicare Part B premium will stay the same, allowing many beneficiaries to realize the full cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), according to Allsup, a nationwide provider of Social Security disability, veterans disability appeal and Medicare plan selection services.

“In years past, the positive impact of COLA was less because many beneficiaries also saw an increase in their Medicare Part B premiums, but that won’t be as much of an issue in 2014,” explained Tricia Blazier, personal financial planning manager at Allsup.

“COLA is designed to help maintain the value of Social Security and veterans benefits despite inflation, which affects the costs of living,” Blazier said. “This very limited COLA increase indicates the low inflation rate in the economy, but it could be disappointing for those who have high healthcare expenses and primarily rely on Social Security for income.”

The average SSDI benefit will increase to $1,148 from $1,131, an increase of $17 per month, or $204 per year. Third-quarter results reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) are used by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to set the COLA. The increase takes effect for Social Security retirement and SSDI recipients in January 2014.

Automatic COLA increases have been applied to Social Security benefits every year since 1975, except for 1983, 2010 and 2011. In 1983 there was an administrative change, and in 2010-11, consumer prices did not ex
