There are likely to be millions of Americans receiving $1,800 in additional payments next year.

In its latest COLA projection, the Senior Citizens League (TSCL) reportedly projects that the rate will increase to about 8.6 percent in 2023.

Approximately $143 per month would be added to the average benefit, and the maximum amount would increase by $361 to $4,555.

A COLA is used to calculate social security benefits every year.

In the year following the end of the year, the consumer price index (CPI) will determine the amount of the COLA for the following year.

Social Security benefits in this year's average are $1,657, while the maximum is $4,194.

What to do when your disability worsens, part three

“There really isn’t a max amount for disabled workers that matches the maximum retired worker benefits we post on our website,” 

the SSA told The Sun previously. If your disability worsens over the course of time

your benefits may increase regardless of whether you're receiving benefits from either or both programs.

Your earnings may be affected if this occurs, which means you might qualify for a higher benefit.

Be aware that you could lose your disability benefits if your health improves to the point of no longer qualifying as disabled.
