After the 2022 COLA increase, Social Security recipients will be eligible for an additional $200 January payment – here’s how to get it.


The cost-of-living adjustment increase for 2022 will provide an additional $200 to certain Social Security recipients this month.

COLA payments will be 5.9% higher in 2022 than they were in 2021, starting on January 12th.


The $92 increase is the largest COLA boost for retirees since 1982.

As a result of the supply chain crisis, inflation is still at record highs across the country.

Retired workers’ spouses will get a $47 raise, bringing their average monthly payments up to $841.

Employees with disabilities will receive a $75 raise in their monthly pay, up from $1,253 to $1,358.

Meanwhile, a small group of people will see an increase in their monthly benefits of $200 or more.

To receive an additional $200 per month in benefits from a 5.9% increase, recipients must have received at least $3,389 per month in 2021.

In 2021, the maximum benefit was $3,895.

The full benefit depends on the age you retire.
