Frequently Asked Questions
Hi, what is this COLA for veterans? Is it for all veterans or just disabled veterans. I have been out of the Army since 2010. If I am eligible, how do I apply for benefits?
COLA is the Cost-of-Living-Adjustment that is applied to veterans’ disability compensation, dependency and indemnity compensation for survivors, and pensions of low-income combat veterans. If you are receiving any of these benefits, the COLA is automatically added to your payments at the beginning of the year. You do not need to do anything additional to receive the adjustment.
