RELEASE: ROA Honors Rep. Tom Latham with its Highest Award (Oct. 5, 2010)
False Information About VA COLA
hoax e-mail is being circulated that claims recently-passed H.R. 4667,
the Veterans' Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2010,
nearly doubles disability benefits, when in fact it simply included
language that authorizes for this year the same COLA increases for VA
beneficiaries that will be paid to Social Security annuitants and
Low Inflation Torpedoes COLA
appears that for a second year in a row, there will be no COLA increase
for military retirees and Social Security annuitants. The COLA
adjustment is based on the difference in this year's CPI-W Q3 average
from the highest previous average, and so far that figure is negative.
