The Maryland State Retirement Agency has announced the cost-of-living adjustment to be applied in July 2020. This year’s COLA rate is 1.812 percent. A retiree who has been retired at least one year as of July 1, 2020, qualifies for this year’s COLA. The increased monthly benefit will be shown on the Automatic Deposit Advice mailed to retirees' homes on July 31. Those who retired after July 2019 (August 2019 or later) will receive their first COLA increase in July 2021.
