Your new benefit amount will be available in December.
Approximately 70 million Americans will see a 1.3 percent increase in their Social Security benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments in 2021. We will mail Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) notices throughout the month of December to retirement, survivors, and disability beneficiaries, SSI recipients, and representative payees.
Want to know your new benefit amount before your notice arrives? Starting in early December, you will be able to securely view and save your Social Security COLA notice online via the Message Center inside my Social Security.
Benefit amounts will not be available before December. Make sure you are signed up for notifications from the my Social Security Message Center by choosing email or text under “Message Center Preferences.” With convenient access to your COLA notice online, there’s no need to contact us to get your new benefit amount.
