For FERS Retirees:

The 2019 FERS retiree COLA is based on the third quarter (July, August, September) average CPI-W Index (1982-84=100) in 2018 over the 2017 third quarter average.  However, if the CPI-W quarterly average increases 3% or more, they subtract 1%.  A 5% increase in the quarterly CPI-W average results in a 4% adjustment.  If the quarterly average increases from 2% to 3%, benefits increase by 2%.  A CPI-W quarterly average increase of 2% or less will increase benefits by the change in the CPI-W quarterly average. After the second quarter of 2018, the third quarter for the 2019 COLA adjustment period, the quarterly average has risen by 2.4%.
