A Message To All SSA And DDS Employees

Subject:  Information about 2014 COLA

Today we announced a 1.5 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) in 2014 for the nearly 63 million Americans who collect monthly benefits.

The Social Security Act ties the annual COLA to increases in the Consumer Price Index, which the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics determines.

The COLA will take effect with SSI payments paid on December 31, 2013, and Social Security payments sent in January 2014.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced earlier this week the standard Medicare Part B monthly premium will be $104.90 in 2014, the same as it was in 2013.  Further information about Medicare changes for 2014 is available at www.Medicare.gov <http://www.medicare.gov/> .
You may find details about the new COLA at www.socialsecurity.gov/cola, and we link to this website from our homepage.
