Members with Valley Strong Accounts - No Action Needed

3% COLA Approved for Retirees
Eligible retired members receive an annual cost of living adjustment (COLA) based on the change in the Consumer Price Index (if any). SJCERA's actuary has calculated the applicable COLA to be three percent (3%). SJCERA's Board of Retirement approved the actuary's recommended COLA at its February 11, 2022 meeting. COLAs are applied to retirees' May 1 benefit payments.
