Social Security beneficiaries will be saddened to note that the hike will not help them raise their living standards. The retirees’ monthly payments will increase by $92, from $1565 to $1,657. The annual increase for the retirees will be around $1,200.

Retirees Should Avail Benefits At A Suitable Age

The citizens need to choose the time of application wisely. The retirees can delay the post-retirement payments to maximize them. The minimum age to apply for Social Security is 62.

However, the retirees will receive very little compared to those who started receiving at a later age. Retirees can delay their application till 70 to receive the maximum monthly amount. However, the beneficiaries should consider the age of applying based on their circumstances.
