Social Security Benefit Rises Dramatically This Year

"Social Security benefits will rise 5.9% in 2022, the most in four decades.

UPDATE in the comments adding in the amounts per year.

That is the NY Times headline. Here is what that means:

If your benefit in 2021 is $1,000.00 per month, your check will go up $59.00 per month.

If your check is $2,000.00 per month, your check will increase by $118.00 per month.

I'm still here......

Just a short note to let everybody know I'm still here and following matters as best as I can.

I've been dealing with a few system hardware issues (laptop DC power jack issues) but I am still hereabouts.

A few spats about COVID-19 aren't enough to keep me away from here! c99's stuck with me unless and until Monsieur le Conqueroo throws me out!!
