AIER in CNN Money

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Checks for 66 million beneficiaries will rise between 0.2% to 0.5% in 2017. That works out to between $2.61 and $6.53 a month more for the typical retiree, according to the American Institute for Economic Research, a nonpartisan think tank.

The government won't release the official cost of living adjustment until after the September inflation reading, which is due on Oct. 18. But the AIER's estimates, which use government data, are typically on the mark.
