S. 2072, Veterans' Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2019

On July 10, 2019, Senator Johnny Isakson (GA), Chairman of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, introduced S. 2072-the Veterans' Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2019.

This bill, if enacted, would authorize a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for veterans in receipt of compensation and pension, and for survivors of veterans who died from service-incurred disabilities and are in receipt of Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC). It would provide a COLA increase at the same percentage rate as Social Security and would be effective December 1, 2019.

Receipt of annual COLA increments aids injured and ill veterans, their families, and their survivors to help maintain the value of their VA benefits against inflation.  Without COLAs, these individuals, who sacrificed their own health and their family life for the good of our nation, may not be able to maintain a quality of life in their elder years.  DAV strongly supports S. 2072, as it is in accordance with DAV Resolution No. 038.

Earlier this year, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1200, the Veterans' Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2019.  This bill, S. 2072, is the Senate version.
