Federal Employees: Pay and Pension Increases Since 1969

Description:

Pay increases for current federal employees and cost-of-living adjustments
(COLAs) for retired federal employees often differ because they are based on
changes in different economic variables. Increases in pay for civilian federal workers are indexed to wage and salary increases in the private-sector, as measured by the Employment Cost Index (ECI), while federal retirement and disability benefits are indexed to price increases as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). This report discusses the procedures for determining such increases.
