The Social Security cost-of-living adjustment for 2020 will be considerably lower than the 2.8 percent COLA received this year, according to a new estimate from The Senior Citizens League.

“The government’s consumer price index data for August indicates that COLA recipients can expect to get a benefit boost of about 1.6 percent in 2020,” says TSCL’s Social Security policy analyst, Mary Johnson. “That would raise an average retiree benefit of $1,460 by about $23.40 per month, a big drop from the $40.90 that people with that level of benefits received this year,” Johnson says.
