Ops Memo 2014-02: 2014 Social Security/SSI Benefit Adjustment for TAFDC, EAEDC and SNAP



Effective January 2014, Social Security benefits and federal SSI payments increased by 1.5 percent. This is sometimes called a Cost of Living Adjustment or COLA. The base level Medicare Part B Premium remains at $104.90. The Medicare Part B Penalty Premium is identified in the 2014 Medicare Part B Surcharge Premiums chart on page 5 of this memo.

  • explains which cases listed on the Clients With RSDI and/or SSI view require case manager action; and
