Quick Answers...


Do Social Security benefits automatically increase with inflation?

Yes. Beginning in 1975 Social Security benefits are periodically automatically adjusted to inflation. Current law ties this increase to the consumer price index (CPI) or the rise in the general wage level, whichever is lower.
