April 2019 Retiree COLA


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

Members with retirement dates on or before March 31, 2019 are eligible to receive the COLA, which is effective April 1 and paid in the retirement benefit received at the end of April.
