COLA Watch Update
The July Consumer Price Index (CPI) was 252.636, 1.0 percent above the FY 2020 COLA baseline. The CPI for August is scheduled to be released on September 11, 2020. The CPI baseline for FY 2020 is 250.200. The 2021 COLA will be based on the CPI average from July through September. If the trend holds, the odds are that we will have a small COLA increase next year. Stay tuned over the next two months to be sure.
