Overseas COLA Tables
Overseas COLA is not a fixed amount. The Department implements OCOLA decreases effective May 16 and November 16. Rate reductions based on the annual cost-of-living assessment (greater than 2 index points) will be implemented in 50% increments while OCOLA decreases based on currency fluctuations will be implemented in full each cycle. OCOLA increases will continue to be implemented when warranted during the year. COLA adjustments become final following review and approval by the Service Compensation Representatives of the eight Unformed Services.
