Members Petition for 5% COLA increase


In the past ten years, retirees have had three 1% cost of living adjustments (COLA) while inflation has been at 19% or more.  We are 15% behind the rate of inflation according to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).  In April 2019, members of NCRSP voted to ask for a 5% COLA to be allocated in the state budget.

NCRSP members share their personal stories while petitioning legislators for a COLA.
