The United States House of Representatives voted this week to give final approval to a bill giving disabled veterans and veterans’ survivors a 1.5 percent cost of living increase. The United States Senate voted on the 1.5 percent COLA increase in October so if, as expected, President Obama signs the measure into law the cost of living increase will become effective December 1, 2013. Veterans will begin seeing the increase in January of 2014.
