social security COL

Just received a letter from social security stating I would be receiving a 1.7% increase for cost of living. It then listed what I get now and then what I would get on 1/13/13- both figures were exactly the same. Can someone shed some light on this for me? Thanks- Paul

The deducted cost of Medicare Part B also went up, but only by $5, I think.

If you're unsure about this, visit your local Social Security office and sit down with a representative. If you are worried about a crowd, you can phone for an appointment at 1 800 772 1213. People with appointments are seen before walk-ins.
