Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) Approved for 2018

The TVA Retirement System Board of Directors has approved a 1.84 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for eligible retirees for calendar year 2018.

Retirees will see the increase in checks beginning Jan. 31, 2018.

The COLA is calculated by comparing the percentage change in the U.S. Labor Department’s Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) from the 12-month period ending  Oct. 31, 2017 to the previous 12-month period.
