COLA

Q. I retired Dec. 31, 2010, at age 60 and turned 62 on Dec. 11 under the FERS 60/20 retirement plan. I thought this would qualify for the 1.7 percent cost-of-living increase in 2013 as I did not get a COLA for two years per the conditions. Will I actually have to wait another year to qualify for a COLA as I am being told?

A. Yes.
