COLA Will Cause Small SSDI Increase for Recipients

COLA Will Cause Small SSDI Increase for Recipients

According to Allsup, SSDI beneficiaries will see a 1.5% increase in their payments in 2014 after their annual cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA) has taken place. The increase will provide an opportunity for people with disabilities to revisit their budget and financial needs as they enter the New Year. Estimations show that SSDI benefits will receive about $7 more per month and a total increase in about $204 per year.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs recently confirmed that Veterans will also receive a COLA increase. Because of the increase, this is a prime time for disabled individuals to apply for SSDI insurance. According to Allsup, those who suffered serious disability in 2013 and are no longer able to work should consider applying for benefits if they don't anticipate being able to go back to work at the start of the new year.
