How will the January 2022 social security cost of living adjustment affect me? I will be 65 in March 2022, still working not collecting benefits.
Thank you, Kevin
Hi. All Social Security cost of living (COLA) increases that occur after a person turns age 62 are added to a their Social Security retirement benefit rate whether or not they are drawing benefits. So, the short answer is that you'll be credited with the COLA increase that's expected next January even if you delay drawing your benefits.
