This is the time of the year when insurers inform us how much more our insurance will cost next year.
Auto insurance up
Home owners insurance up
Term life insurance really up
Supplemental health insurance up
Cost of food up daily
No cost of living increase to Social security for two years running. What will the government grant us for 2012? It appears that the increase will be 3.6%. More than I expected and less than I hoped. I am grateful that it was not a chained CPI, but the entire increase for the entire year will be eaten up by the one insurer’s increase in our term life insurance premium. Easy come, easy go.
