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. The 2019 FERS COLA adjustment will be 2.0% effective with January 2019 annuity payments.
