-

some of the rates don't come out if we are getting a raise of 4.1, unless we are getting more, as the 100% raise is 154.00, not 91.80

That was from the Senate site, this one from the House site shows only a 2.7% raise. Nothing is agreed, or valid, until the differences are ironed out, and they send a consolidated proposal forward for the President's signature.

The Senate shows a 6.9% increase, by the time they reach a compromise, if we're lucky it may be 4.1%.

Has anybody noticed this little snippet from Military.com;

Retired Pay COLA Increases

Each year your military retirement pay is adjusted to meet the increased cost of living. This Cost of Living Adjustment varies from year to year based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The COLA for 2006 will be 4.1 percent for retired pay, SBP annuities, Social Security, and veterans disability compensation effective December 1, 2005 and will be seen in the January 15, 2006 paycheck. Retirees who first became a member of a Uniformed Service before September 8, 1980 and retired after January 1, 2005 will receive a 3.4 COLA. For more information, visit 2006 Retirement COLA.

Looks like the Pentagon/Congress is pulling the old,'Save money by delaying the troops pay', trick AGAIN.
