Social Security 2017 COLA STILL UNLIKELY

For there to be a 2017 COLA the average CPI-W for July, August and September 2016 must exceed 233.27. 

No month from October 2015 through March 2016 has exceeded that number.  

March 2016 was 232.209.

  1. If the gas prices keep going up, we may see a small cola in 2017. Great if it happens, I have not purchased any gasoline since July 2014. City bus $20 per month. Greyhound if I travel.


      • Yeah, one step forward, two steps backward. Part B premium goes up and then your Medicare supplement premium goes up, so it is a double whammy. About the only way I stay even is cut something like steak out of the budget or wait 3 more months before my next haircut.
