2021 Social Security Cost Of Living Adjustment: 1.3%

Social Security checks will be slightly higher next year.

The cost-of-living adjustment will be one-point-three percent.

It’s slightly lower than this year’s increase which came out to one-point-six percent.

Increases have varied in the last decade and sometimes there hasn’t been an increase at all.

That was the case in 2010, 2011, and 2016.
