SOCIAL SECURITY INCREASE

UNDATED (WTVB) - Two million elders in Michigan and others who are on Social Security will be getting a raise in January, but for most state residents, it won't make much of a difference with a 1.7 percent increase in the checks they receive.

That's one of the smallest increases since they started cost-of-living adjustments in 1975.  Mark Hornbeck with AARP Michigan says that money won't be burning a whole in anyone's pocket. The average monthly check for aMichiganresident is about 12-hundred dollars, but without it, Hornbeck says, nearly half of the them would fall into poverty.
