The VFW supports this legislation. Veterans have not received a COLA increase in two years, but are still paying more at the grocery store, pharmacy, gas pump, and elsewhere. We are encouraged that recent data shows a 2.1% increase in the CPI-W over the 2008 COLA base, and are hopeful that veterans and survivors will see a corresponding increase in their pensions and other compensation, such as DIC, in the coming year. This legislation is the vehicle to ensure that takes place.

AMVETS strongly supports H.R. 1407, the ‘‘Veterans’ Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2011’’. H.R. 1407 or “COLA” is critical in ensuring the areas of need regarding today’s cost of living are adjusted annually. Wartime Disability Compensation, the Clothing Allowance for severely disabled veterans, Dependency and Indemnity Compensation to Surviving Spouse and Dependency and Indemnity Compensation to Children monetary values must be increased every year to sustain veterans, dependents and survivor’s current quality of life. AMVETS urges the swift passage of H.R. 1407 and offers are unwavering support.
