Social Security increase for seniors
Starting in January, people on Social Security will see a 3.6% payment increase. The adjustment is being made to meet new cost of living standards. Because inflation has been very low in recent years, beneficiaries have not seen an increase since 2009. That's when they received a 5.8% percent boost.
