Federal officials aren’t expected to announce the Social Security benefits adjustment until mid-October.

If that estimate is correct, it would be the highest annual increase since 1981.

The fact that the captain’s announcements are overriding (ducking) it but the flight attendants aren’t is also an indication it’s coming from that system. »
