The chart below shows the percentage of COLA increase that retirees will receive based on their employer-contracted COLA provision percentage and their retirement year. Most state and all school agencies contract for a 2 percent COLA provision, while public agencies may contract for a 3, 4, or 5 percent COLA provision.
