The federal government announced today that Social Security benefits, including Social Security Retirement, Social Security Disability Insurance ("SSDI"), and Supplement Security Income ("SSI") benefits, will increase by 1.7% in 2015.VA benefits are tied to Social Security benefits.  Therefore, VA benefits should also see an increase of 1.7% in 2015, although the VA has not officially announced an increase.

The federal government also announced that the Medicare premium will remain the same in 2015.  Most, but not all, people pay a premium of $104.90 per month for Medicare.
