While Congress is considering bills to authorize a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) in 2016 governing veterans’ disability compensation, pension and other payments, the Social Security Administration has already announced that no COLA will be made available through its offices in 2016.

“In recent years, it has become apparent that even the several recent COLA increases failed to meet rising costs faced by disabled veterans, their dependents and survivors,” said Garry Augustine, DAV Washington Headquarters Executive Director.
