COLA Watch

The final FY 2018 COLA, took effect Jan. 1, 2019, is 2.8 percent, matching MOAA's prediction.

For context, this means that for every $1,000 you currently receive in retired pay, you will receive $28 more starting Jan. 1, 2019. The calculation is made by comparing the average CPI from July through September of the current fiscal year to the average for the same months of the year prior. Remember, active duty pay raises are calculated differently.
