Recipients of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD) / Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments will now be able to view their cost of living adjustment (COLA) notice online through their Social Security account. Claimants can create an account and access their Social Security account online at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount.
Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiaries will receive a 2.8 percent COLA for 2019. This percentage is based on the increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI-W) from the third quarter of 2017 through the third quarter of 2018. The 2.8 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) with benefits payable to more than 62 million Social Security beneficiaries began in January 2019.
