CPI-W uptick bodes well for Social Security COLA 

The CPI-W increased to 236.560 in February 2017. This is a 0.6% increase over benchmark of 235.057 for the third quarter of 2016. 

Not a large number, but heading the the right direction with a long way to go. HOWEVER, keep in mind that there is still some catching up to do for the Medicare Part B premium.
