Social Security Benefits Increase for 2012

Tags: Medicare, seniors, social security benefits

After two years of no increases, Social Security recipients will see a 3.6 percent increase in their monthly benefits in 2012, the Social Security Administration announced today.

The 3.6 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) will begin with benefits that nearly 55 million Social Security beneficiaries receive in January 2012. Increased payments to more than 8 million SSI beneficiaries will begin on December 30, 2011.

However, the 2012 premiums and deductibles for Medicare may absorb most of that increase. Medicare is expected to announce soon its Medicare Part B premiums and deductibles for Part A and Part B of Medicare for 2012.

Longevity Alliance recommends that seniors calculate their health care costs for 2012 when the new Medicare premiums are announced.  It can also be a good time to speak with a long term care insurance agent about the cost of long term care insurance.  Some Medicare supplement plan companies offer their customers a discount on long term care insurance plans.

But you only have a limited time to find a new plan on your own.

This is the one time per year that all Medicare beneficiaries can change their Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D Drug plan. Cost isn't the only reason to compare plans. If you are visiting the doctor more/less frequently, if your doctor is no longer in your network, if your medications have changes, if your plan benefits have changed are just a few of the reasons you should take a look at Medicare health plan benefits and prices for 2012.
