April 2018 Retiree COLA: 3%


At the February meeting, the Retirement Board affirmed the actuary's calculation of a 3% cost of living adjustment (COLA) for the plan. The actual amount of your retiree COLA depends upon the employer and/or tier from which you retired, and your date of retirement. Maximum COLAs are 2%, 3% or 4%.

Members with retirement dates on or before March 31, 2018 are eligible to receive the COLA, which is effective April 1 and paid in the retirement benefit received at the end of April.
