The TWU Veterans Committee met in New York July 18th-July 20th 2017. As part of our meeting we gathered to volunteer with the Long Island Beach Waterfront Warriors. We love helping our fellow veterans and are honored the group allowed us to help with such a wonderful event.
VA Disability Compensation military retirees and veterans will receive a 0.3% COLA increase for 2017. The average VA compenstation recipient will receive an average of $2.89 monthly increase. This may buy you a loaf of bread. Retirees may get up to a $13.00 on their monthly check. I guess this increase is better than nothing, but the Cost of Living Adjustment may go up to 3% this year, you can see there's no decimal point in front of that 3.
To find out your rate increase, please go to website.
