Social Security Increase

My heart flipped when I read the news title on Social Security Increase while surfing the net tonight. Thinking it was applicable to my mother’s social security monthly pension which comes every month after my father’s death, I thought I will be having some good news for her. Until, I read through that the Social Security Increase on the news is actually only applicable those in the United States.

According to the news, after 2 years without increase in benefits the Social Security cost of living allowance benefit shall be given to its beneficiaries but only those qualified citizens of United States of America. That’s no good news for my mother.
