Social Security Will Screw Retirees Again In 2017

"The projected 0.2 percent increase in Social Security payments would come a year after beneficiaries received no increase... The average monthly payment is about $1,232, so the average increase would be a little less than $2.50"

My Comments About The Article Above
This reminds me of the wife's 82 year old grandmother when she was still alive a few years ago. She received a $2 increase in her monthly SS benefits while living at Gross Towers for seniors. Because she got the $2 her monthly rent was increased by $1. That would be funny if it weren't so sad.

Yeah I hadn't gotten a increase in Social Security last year but that didn't stop my monthly Medicare payment from going up. For some next year as much as $27 !

I think we all know where this country's priorities are.

Yeah sure, love you both right back !
