Do COLAs Continue after the Temporary Benefit Ends?

Sep 13, 2023, 13:37 PM by MOSERS
Upon retirement: MSEP 2000 Once the temporary benefit goes away at age 62. Do you still receive a COLA on your monthly draw thereafter yearly if available? Thank you.

Yes. General state employees who retire under MSEP 2000 or MSEP 2011, who are eligible for the temporary benefit, will continue to receive an annual cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) on their continuing base benefit after their temporary benefit ends. 

Any COLAs associated to the temporary benefit, and the temporary benefit itself, will end directly after the member’s 62nd birthday. To learn more, see our Cost-of-Living Adjustments page.
