Hello, my name is ***** ***** I can help you. My understanding is that a 2% COLA adjustment was approved for 2018, so that is what you should be seeing. The fact that you are not, and there aren't other factors present (ex - if you are a medicare recipient and you have your Plan B premium deducted from ssi), then you should contact social security right away. Just to mention - Just Answer is not associated with Social Security so we do not have access to your personal information.

You can contact social security to get to the bottom of this issue in one of three ways:

1. Use your online "My Social Security" account. If you do not yet have an online account, you can register here: https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/

2. Call Social Security at 1-***-***-**** between the hours of 7:00 am and 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

3. Visit your local Social Security office.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Fred
