2020 Social Security Changes- COLA Increase

Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for nearly 69 million Americans will increase 1.6 percent in 2020, the Social Security Administration announced today.

The 1.6 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) will begin with benefits payable to more than 63 million Social Security beneficiaries in January 2020.  Increased payments to more than 8 million SSI beneficiaries will begin on December 31, 2019.  (Note: some people receive both Social Security and SSI benefits).  The Social Security Act ties the annual COLA to the increase in the Consumer Price Index as determined by the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.

DSEA Retired Newsletters

The officers of DSEA-R regularly publish newsletters to keep members informed about the latest news, information, and trainings that impact them.

Health, Wellness, and Aging

You've worked hard for decades and deserve to enjoy every minute of retirement.  However, your health and well-being plays a big role in how much you're able to enjoy.  NEA and DSEA provide you with an up-to-date list of programs and organizations dedicated to keeping you healthy and focuse on enjoying your retirement.

Lifestyle, Leisure, and Travel

Retirement is meant to be enjoyed.  "Enjoyment", of course, means something different to each person, but NEA and DSEA are proud to provide you with access to information on events, promotions, and products that can help you make the most out of your leisure and travel time.

Politics and Advocacy

The decisions that impact your retirement (Social Security funding; medical benefits; etc.) are made by the same officials who make the decisions that affect our schools.  DSEA needs all members, both active and retired, to be advocates in support of strong public education in Delaware and across the country.


Volunteering your time is one of the best ways to stay active and engaged with your community.  The opportunities featured here will be updated often to provide you with information on how to be an integral part of your community.

Financial and Legal Planning

Financial and legal matters are always tricky to navigate.  That's why NEA and DSEA are committed to providing you with information that makes that navigation as easy and worry-free as possible.
