CPI continues to indicate NO Social Security COLA for 2021

The Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) decreased 0.1 percent over the last 12 months to an index level of 249.521 (1982-84=100). For the month, the index was unchanged prior to seasonal adjustment.

This is pure speculation, but given the economy and the free spending philosophy of Congress, I wouldn’t rule out a special COLA from politicians seeking votes.
