Will I get cost of living increases when I am on Social Security retirement ?


Once you begin receiving your Social Security retirement benefit, widow/widowers benefit, or disability related benefit, you will be given a yearly cost of living increase in the month of December (which will actually appear in your January check). Consequently, the check that you receive in the month of January will reflect the cost of living increase for the year.
