Stay vig­i­lant on So­cial Se­cu­rity

The Wichita Eagle (Sunday) - - Opinion -

So­cial Se­cu­rity re­cip­i­ents will get a 2.8 per­cent cost-of-liv­ing ad­just­ment in monthly ben­e­fits be­gin­ning in Jan­uary. The av­er­age in­di­vid­ual re­tired So­cial Se­cu­rity ben­e­fi­ciary is ex­pected to see a monthly ben­e­fit jump from $1,422 to $1,461. The es­ti­mated monthly in­crease is $39, or $468 for the year.

While it is much ap­pre­ci­ated, it does not re­ally keep up with gas prices and health­care costs. Still, it is some­thing. And we have to be vig­i­lant through the next year to make sure
