2. There IS a COLA adjustment for 2010 and 2011...
...it's just zero.


SS COLAs are based on the CPI-W, which currently shows zero growth in cost of living.

But, since each year's SS COLA is based on comparing Q3 numbers from the previous year with Q3 numbers from the year preceding THAT, I don't see how this announcement is anything more than a prediction.
