Social Security benefits for next year will be slightly higher than this year – 5.9% more overall, thanks to the largest rise in the cost of living in nearly four decades. Rising inflation and relentless supply chain pressures have forced the Social Security Administration to increase benefits for seniors by an average of about $100 per month.
