Monthly Social Security & Supplemental Security income benefits for millions of Americans

will increase 2.0 percent in 2018

The 2.0 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) will begin with benefits payable to more than 65 million Social Security beneficiaries in January 2018.  The Social Security Act ties the annual COLA to the increase in the Consumer Price Index as determined by the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Some other adjustments that take effect in January of each year are based on the increase in average wages. Based on that increase, the maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security tax (taxable maximum) will increase to $128,400 from $127,200.  Of the estimated 173 million workers who will pay Social Security taxes in 2018, some will pay more because of the increase in the taxable maximum. 

For many 2018 Medicare Premiums will be $134.
