WHAT IS NEW ON OUR WEBSITE???
Here is the information that was released today on the approved COLA increase for 2015.
"Federal employees who retired under the CSRS and others who receive Social Security benefits will get a 1.7 percent increase in their monthly payments in January 2015. This will be the third straight year that federal retirees, along with millions of Social Security recipients and disabled veterans, will receive historically small increases in their cost of living adjustment (COLA). There were two years (2010 and 2011) in which there was no COLA increase at all. The 1.7% increase is less than it was in 2012 when the increase was 3.6%.
Many readers have commented that the COLA does not reflect their true cost of increasing prices. That is generally correct. There are higher increases for essential items such utility and grocery bills. Health care costs are also going up considerably with some insurance policies under the federal employees health program starting to impose much higher deductibles and other fees that can increase the cost of obtaining medical care. The Blue Cross standard health plan will be increasing about $18 a month beginning in February 2015."
Don't spend it all in one place as the ole saying goes.
