The Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) as of 1 April 2020 has been successfully implemented and the adjusted amount will be reflected in the April 2020 benefit payment, which will be disbursed at the end of April 2020.
However, printing and mailing of COLA notification letters have been delayed in relation to the COVID-19 situation.
In addition, postal services have been disrupted and even suspended in some countries, which could affect the effective or timely delivery of the COLA letters.
Therefore, if you would like to view or print your COLA letter, it is available in the Fund’s Member Self Service (MSS) under the MSS DOCUMENTS tab.
You can register for or access your MSS here.
