Update on 2024 COLA

At the November 2023 Board meeting, AFRF's actuary determined that a COLA cannot be supported under the Fund’s COLA Policy, based on the Fund’s amortization period exceeding the 25-year maximum set forth in the policy for financial stability assessment. The Board is bound by its COLA Policy and its actuary’s recommendation and therefore was unable to grant a COLA for 2024. It was a difficult decision for the Board given the continued inflationary pressure on our retirees. Please see the actuary’s COLA Policy Analysis below and feel free to reach out to staff if you have any questions. Striving to provide COLAs, when affordable, remains one of the top priorities of the Board.
