2007 ConUS COLA
 

Service members in 66 high-cost areas across the country qualify for the continental U.S. cost-of-living allowance, or ConUS COLA. The allowance compensates service members for nonhousing expenses in areas where these costs exceed the national average by more than 8 percent. Rates are based, in part, on dependent status. To calculate your monthly allowance, go to the appropriate ConUS COLA chart for your family status ("with dependents" or "without dependents") and find the base rate for your paygrade and years of service, then multiply that rate by the figure next to your duty station in the list of eligible locations below.
