CALCULATED PROPERLY, THEY'D HAVE THEIR CHECKS REDUCED:

Low Inflation, Flatter COLA: Social Security Benefits to Get 1.7% Bump (Eric Morath, Josh Mitchell, October 22, 2014, Dow Jones Newswires)

Tens of millions of elderly and disabled Americans will see a small bump in their government payments next year, another reflection of a sluggish economic recovery that has kept inflation low.

The Social Security Administration on Wednesday announced a 1.7% annual cost-of-living adjustment, or COLA, for the nearly 64 million Americans who receive federal retirement or disability benefits. The increase would result in about a $22-a-month increase for the average retiree. Increases have been between 1.5% and 1.7% for three straight years.
