PostSubject: Social Security announces 3.6% COLA increase   Wed Oct 19, 2011 11:02 am

I guess everybody has heard the news today from Social Security and I got an email from our Government with the press release, darn it, I deleted it and I should have posted a copy here. Anyway, I read it and at the bottom it said that the increase will be effective Jan. 1, 2012, that means that SS receipients won't see the increase until their check in Feb, 2012.
Then it said that for SSI receipients the effective date will be Dec. 30, 2012. Would anyone care to take a stab at what this means and why it would be done?
Color me confused, as usual. Question Question Question Question

I have been wondering the same thing! Wifey got hers today and I read it but sounded like double talk as usual! Just told her not to complain and it would show up whenever they got around to it!! I will take another look at it tomorrow when I get to the office and see if I can decipher it better.

It was on the news today but I only half heard what they were saying. I know I'm no help. So what else is new?

I went on line and asked why the 2 dates but nothing appeared in referance for 2 dates. I skimmed through 3 seperate articles and all said Dec. Who knows? I mean we are dealing with a government that has it's head on backwards.

Well I got side tracked at the courthouse and then has an opportunity to go shoot at Frank's (west of town) and did not get to dig into it yet! I have a hearing in the morning and should be through around 11am and then in the office for a while. I will see what I can find out if anything tomorrow.

WHAT THE HELL.
I thought there was no inflation to merit a pay increase.

You all know what this is don't you????

This coming year is election year and after screwing everyone on SS by not giving any increases because there is no inflation (BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) he is giving a increase now so that he will look better in the eyes of the voters living on SS.
It's funny how they worked (well most of them did any way) all their lives and paid in to SS and this frack hole government spends their money to buy votes and says frack you for years, except in the election year.

Actually the COLA increases for SS/SSI & VA Disability Benefits are all tied to the CPI, Consumer Price Index. In January this year he convened a panel to investigate if there should be an alternative to using the CPI because it didn't increase for two years but as usual nothing has ever been heard of from this panel.
I'm predicting that the VA is trying to wrap their heads around what this increase will do to their budget but I'm pretty certain it will happen.
As for the two different dates I still haven't received any responses from any government agencies I sent emails to. I do know that SS/SSI & VA pay each month for the previous month, ie, the check I get on January 1, 2012 will be for Dec. 2011. So the question is that since SSI raises become effective Dec 30th (instead of Jan. 1st like SS) would I be paid for the full month?
As we all know our gov. behaves in strange, unexplicable ways to most of us but, I guarentee you that someone is benefitting from there being two different dates.

This COLA will not offset the Medicare increase that they will get with the increase from what I heard.

True, Medicare is increasing the co-pay for those who sign up for "Part D". IMO, it's just typical of how our law makers continue to treat retirees, vets & disabled people.

Did a little more checking and can't decipher the dates being different but did verify that the increase will be in the ballpark of what the increase in premium will be! Just great ain't it!!!

Life with politicians is a bad thing.


An Idle Thought

I had this thought,

go through my mind,

about the state, we’re in.

It’s not the economy,

or ecology,

that has our heads a spin.

the problem lies,

seen through, my eyes,

over which, the wool’s been pulled.

You will not dine,

on rib that’s prime,

from the hind end, of the bull.



Jack Downing

Flank steak can be delicious if prepared in a correct manner.

Sure if you want to come to my home for prime rib you are very welcome. Just keep in mind where I live. Where I live is not acually in the U.S., it used to be when I was growing up, but when I returned from my small part in the war, I discovered it was moved to a very dark dank place.

Yeah I suppose you do. It was a nice place to live a long time ago. I'm sure you have had the same experiance. I cant beleive the greed and power monging going on in this country. It has become like a desease or better a cancer that is consuming everything. I dont get it. For what? Because they can? Are they all that evil?
