You may not see the increase. Received my SS benefit statement today and the Medicare Part B premium increased by $25.00 leaving me a $8.00 increase in the monthly benefit. Last week received a letter from UnitedHealth Care regarding my Medicare Advantage Plan and all the prescription prices are increasing. Long story short...I will not be seeing any increase, only spending more out of pocket for necessities.

2 percent COLA on your gross social security payment. Before any deductions.
