    My old work partner who was a DC3 told me that no matter where you are, you'll get COLA. However I looked at the online COLA calculator and it looks like only a few certain places get COLA, and they are all very expensive places to live. He told me that he got COLA when he was stationed at Neah Bay, WA - out in the middle of nowhere. Who do I believe? him or the interwebs?

    We got COLA in Alaska, we got none in Lousiana or Virginia. I'm fairly certain Jim is not getting COLA in Texas and Colin is not getting it in Boston. You will not receive COLA at all locations.

    Most likely. If you want a good amount of COLA, there's always Kodiak. It has one of the highest COLA rates. It makes my wallet very happy
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

    I'm sure my son's COLA (Kodiak) makes his girlfriend very happy.

    The city I work for took COLA away from us 2 years ago due to the economy...that was a serious hurt, especially for those already and very close to retirement.

    OK, my curiosity got the best of me.  I found a COLA calculator and guess what, Colin would get COLA in Boston.  I was surprised.  I was correct that Jim does not receive it in Texas.

    Same as BAH, COLA is calculated based on the zip code of the station, not the zip code in which you live.  So if you are stationed in Boston but chose to live in Harvard, you get COLA based on Boston.  So you can play with this and figure it out as well.

    No COLA in Neah Bay. We administered the oversight for that station from Port Angeles and they didin't receive COLA. Maybe he got BAH and COLA confused. You do get paid differently for BAH depending on where you go so perhaps that was the confusion. I get COLA in Detroit and it is the first time I have received COLA since I have been in the CG. As stated, not every location gets it.

    This is a PDF document... it shows the CONUS COLA locations.  There aren't very many at all.  This is not for OutCONUS areas, only in.
