Social Security Benefit Increase for Seniors- drugs, food and energy more expensive

Social Security recipients will be receiving an increase of 3.6% in benefits beginning in 2012. There are currently 55 million Social Security recipients. This is the first cost of living adjustment or “COLA” since 2009. The increase could provide a modest boost to consumer spending which may help the ailing economy.

Automatic increases in Social Security benefits are tied to inflation, which was low during the past several years. In the last 12 months, rising prices were enough to justify the 3.6% increase. Many Americans rely on Social Security for their retirement income. Rising prices for necessities like prescription drugs, food, gas, and energy have been straining the budgets of retirees on a fixed income. Medicare Part B premiums are also set to increase. The exact increase for Medicare part B isn’t final, but could work out to an average of $10 per month. The cost of health care has risen for seniors over the last two years. They have also seen their retirement accounts dwindle and home values drop during the economic downturn.
