Social Security Announces 5.9 Percent Benefit Increase for 2022

Social Security Announces 5.9 Percent Benefit Increase for 2022
 

Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for approximately 70 million Americans will increase 5.9 percent in 2022, the Social Security Administration announced today.

The 5.9 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) will begin with benefits payable to more than 64 million Social Security beneficiaries in January 2022.  Increased payments to approximately 8 million SSI beneficiaries will begin on December 30, 2021.  (Note: some people receive both Social Security and SSI benefits).  The Social Security Act ties the annual COLA to the increase in the Consumer Price Index as determined by the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Some other adjustments that take effect in January of each year are based on the increase in average wages.  Based on that increase, the maximum amount of earnings subject to the Social Security tax (taxable maximum) will increase to $147,000 from $142,800. 

Social Security and SSI beneficiaries are normally notified by mail starting in early December about their new benefit amount.  Most people who receive Social Security payments will be able to view their COLA notice online through their personal my Social Security account.  People may create or access their my Social Security account online at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.    

Information about Medicare changes for 2022, when announced, will be available at www.medicare.gov.  For Social Security beneficiaries receiving Medicare, Social Security will not be able to compute their new benefit amount until after the Medicare premium amounts for 2022 are announced.  Final 2022 benefit amounts will be communicated to beneficiaries in December through the mailed COLA notice and my Social Security’s Message Center.

The Social Security Act provides for how the COLA is calculated.  To read more, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/cola.

NOTE TO CORRESPONDENTS: Below is a fact sheet showing the effect of the various automatic adjustments.

History of White Cane Posts

  1. World White Cane Day is celebrated every year on October 15. Also known as White Cane Safety Day, the day was first marked in 1964 in the United States by President Lyndon B Johnson.
  2. White Cane Day is observed worldwide and recognizes the movement of blind people from dependency to active participation in society. It also celebrates the achievement of blind people.
  3. The first special White Cane Ordinance was passed in December 1930 in Peoria, Illinois. It granted blind pedestrians protections and the right-of-way while carrying a white cane. In 1935, Michigan began promoting the white cane as a visible symbol for the blind. Governor Frank Murphy signed the bill into law in March 1937.
  4. On October 6, 1964, a joint resolution of the Congress, HR 753, was signed into law authorizing the President of The United States of America to proclaim October 15th of each year as "White Cane Day."
  5. In the first White Cane Proclamation President Johnson commended blind people for the growing spirit of independence and the increased determination to be self-reliant and dignified. He said in part: "A white cane in our society has become one of the symbols of a blind person's ability to come and go on his own. Its use has promoted courtesy and opportunity for mobility of the blind on our streets and highways."

 

HOW WILL YOU OBSERVE #WhiteCaneDay

  • The day primarily focuses on the independence and equality of those with visual impairments. Celebrating White Cane Day supports those who are blind or with low vision by raising awareness that this navigation tool is essential for many to help attain their goals and be seen as equal, and that the white cane itself, symbolizes those achievements. Use #WhiteCaneDay to post on social media.

 

  • Join ACB in Celebrating the importance of health and wellness for independence on October 15, White Cane Day, by sharing what you are doing to help raising awareness and celebrate #WhiteCaneDay”
