Social Security benefit checks not expected to increase

WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Some bad news for the nearly 58 million Americans who receive Social Security Benefits.

For the second year in a row, monthly paychecks are not expected to increase at all. A government official says inflation has been too low to justify a raise.

A final decision about the paycheck amount is expected to be made by mid-October.
