Social Security Experts Announce Major 2019 Changes For Millions of People

Published

on

What’s new this week in Social Security is that the prediction for 2019 is a big change for millions of people.

More specifically, there could be a 2.7 percent increase by January for the cost of living adjustments, also known as COLA. The early indications point to that number and suggest it could be the biggest increase they’ve seen in years, making recipients very happy. However, that also indicates that the cost of everyday items might be going up, which means the people who receive Social Security will still be wondering if the adjustment offsets the differences in raised prices for items at the store, healthcare, etc.

Typically, one would hope that when the cost of things across the board rises, then Social Security would go up as well, making the adjustment relative to the cost of living, and making life sustainable for the recipients. These are just early predictions and could completely change depending on a number of variables between now and January of 2019. What will actually happen is unknown at this time, but this is something worth keeping an eye on if you receive social security or know someone who does. This is information worth sharing with them.

Sometimes not knowing if you’ll get an increase that helps offset the changes in the economy and the cost of living could be a stressful time. However, it seems like if things go up next year, that a nice 2.7 percent increase for recipients would be very helpful. This is great because some people over 65, who have worked their entire life, shouldn’t be working anymore. They should have a happy life spent with friends and family. Maybe we could talk some folks in government into retiring early, isn’t that right, Ruth Bader Ginsburg?

USA Today stated:

“Most people who get retirement benefits from Social Security get the bulk of their income from their monthly benefits. Because they don’t have many other sources of money to pay for living expenses, the annual cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) that Social Security gives participants every January play a vital role in helping people make ends meet – especially as the expenses they have to pay inexorably rise.

“Over the past decade, Social Security has been pretty stingy in the COLAs it gives to retirees. But 2019 could be different. Early indications suggest Social Security benefits could go up by a greater amount than retirees and other participants have seen since 2012.

“Social Security calculates each year’s COLA by looking at the Consumer Price Index from July through September and comparing it to the previous year’s levels. So far, only the July figure is available, but if that reading were to stay flat in August and September, it would give retirees a 2.7 percent increase come January. If price levels rise this month and the next, then it’s conceivable the COLA could reach 3 percent.

“The trade-off, of course, is the same rising levels of inflation that produce larger increases to Social Security benefits also end up forcing recipients to pay more for the essential goods that they need. But when the costs of the things that you need as an older American always seem to go up regardless of what government inflation figures say – especially in areas such as health care – then getting a boost to your Social Security is at least a bit of a consolation.”

For some more advice, check out this excerpt from the Motley Fool:

“Social Security plays a role in the lives of nearly every American, between the benefits that tens of millions of retirees and disabled people receive and the payroll taxes that are taken out of the paychecks of hundreds of millions of workers. These workers, their spouses, and other family members rely on Social Security benefits to protect them financially, and for many people, Social Security represents the majority of their income after they retire.

“The Social Security Administration (SSA) wants everyone to know more about the benefits they’ve earned and has declared April to be National Social Security Month. So as the month draws to a close, there’s one thing you can do to make sure you get the most out of Social Security for yourself and your family.

“Open an account on the “my Social Security” website

“The SSA has embraced online innovation and sought to shift many of the things it used to do by paper onto its internet site. The my Social Security program is designed to help you manage your benefits effectively and efficiently while minimizing the chances of identity theft. In the past, the SSA sent out Social Security statements in the mail each and every year, but now, the agency is urging everyone to create a my Social Security account to access that information more securely on their computers or mobile devices.

“Signing up for access is relatively easy. You’ll need some basic personal information in order to verify your identity, and you need an email address to set up your account. However, the process doesn’t take long.

“What you can do with my Social Security

“There are several things that the SSA’s online system lets you do. The most important is seeing your Social Security statement. On the statement, you’ll get information on what your estimated benefits are based on your past earnings record and assumptions about your future earnings. You’ll see how much you’ll be projected to get in monthly benefits at your full retirement age, as well as the higher monthly payments you’ll get if you wait until age 70 and the lower monthly payments from claiming earlier at age 62. You’ll also find out how much you’ll be entitled to receive if you become disabled, and learn what benefits your surviving family members will get if you pass away.

“You also can access your earnings history using my Social Security, which provides the basis for estimating your retirement and disability benefits. There, you’ll see all of your earnings dating back to the beginning of your career. If you see problems, then the website gives you instructions on how to contact the SSA to correct the issue. It’s vital that this information be absolutely accurate because your Social Security payments in retirement will be based on the 35 highest-earning years of your career after indexing for inflation.

“Finally, my Social Security can help you replace missing documents. For instance, if you’ve lost your Social Security card or had it stolen, then the SSA can walk you through the process you’ll need to follow in order to get a replacement.”

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
