Social Security Administration Changes for 2023 Benefits

January 23, 2023
The Social Security Administration has announced the changes for 2023 benefits. The cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) rose to 8.7% to help counteract the effects of inflation, which is the largest increase since 1981. For current workers, the maximum taxable earnings subject to Social Security taxes has increased to $160,200. However, Social Security has also increased the maximum monthly benefit at full retirement age from $3,345 to $3,627. Other changes include increased benefits for spouses and disabled workers, and adjustments to the earnings test exemption amount.
