Annual COLA

Each January, eligible TRA benefit recipients receive an increase in their monthly payment amount. You can view your annual increase letter by logging in to your MyTRA account. An increase of 1 percent was effective Jan. 1, 2019.

The increase is prorated the first year after your benefit effective date and is based on the number of full months you were an annuitant during the previous fiscal year. After the initial prorated increase, you will receive the full increase in subsequent years.
