Social Security in 2018: Potential changes and how they could impact you The Senior Citizens League says that seniors on Social Security can expect an increase in cost of living adjustments not seen since 2012 as a result of inflation, according to this article on Fox Business. “The rate of inflation is the driver of COLA increases. But the truth is that it would not take much to beat COLAs of the past five years — 2013 thru 2017," says an analyst with the advocacy group. "During that time COLAs ranged from a low of zero in 2016, and 0.3% this year, to a 'high' of 1.7 percent in 2013 and 2015, anything above 1.7 percent would make it the highest since 2012. The bar is set pretty low.”
