They must have just sent out a big batch of them. I got mine yesterday (matched what I had seen online/calculated myself).

.

I received mine yesterday.

Since I am already paying the $134 Medicare B premium, my increase will be the entire 2%.

Mine arrived today. Whoo Hoo, every month the increase is $37.80! I have no idea what we're going to do with this windfall.

Hopefully soon.

If it is any consolation, I did notice that logging in to the SS website online (as you so kindly suggested!) gave me the exact same information.

I'm getting $77/month more than last year (partly due to the COLA, and partly due to reduction in my Medicare costs due to income) so I"m happy. Not sure what I'll do with it but I'm sure I'll think of something.

Strangely enough, it was just delivered a few minutes ago.
Same as the online version, but it's nice to not be left out.

Got mine today, will have exactly the same check. Increase due to COLA offset by increase in Medicare Part B, so same net.

Yay!!! This is just terrific. Not that it makes any difference compared with looking at it online, but nobody wants to be left out and it is very reassuring to have a hard copy in hand.
