COLA Percentages – 2019
Cost-of-Living Adjustments (COLAs) have been set for 2019. COLAs will take effect July 1, 2019 and will be reflected in end-of-July benefit payments.
The tables below show the 2019 COLA percentages based on your retirement date and plan. (Looking for COLAS from the previous year? See the 2018 COLA percentages table.)
Most COLAs are based on changes in the Consumer Price Index for the greater Seattle area. For more information about COLAs, annual increases and minimum benefits, visit the Frequently Asked Questions page.
