Why don't the government raise ssi check s
Ssi should increase from$733 to$1300 a mouth really not enough $733 for the American people to live off of.
If the Congress raised the SSI benefits, they would have to give themselves smaller raises.
The SSI is a TAX first, and a promise second.
The death benefit for SS is $255, that wouldn't even cover a decent obit.
SS recipients get whatever retirement payments at the pleasure of the Congress.
Now only if there was some way to get the congress to make improvements in SS? I can't think of one, can you?
Federal employees enjoy a real retirement system that guarantees them a defined BENEFIT, and it is management by private firms, and not the congress.
The $733 a month is the Average, while the high is around $2500 a month.
which is $30,000 a year.
$773 = $8,796
$1300 = $15,600
Cost of living increases should follow those COLA for the federal employee retirement.
Yes, the federal employees also pay into FICA, but FICA and a 401K and an IRA is all that non government employees can hope for.
Social Security retirement was not intended to be the only source of retirement income for people, simply insurance that they don't have nothing.
