Service members in 56 high-cost areas across the country qualify for the continental U.S. cost-of-living allowance, or ConUS COLA, in 2009.

Rates are based, in part, on dependent status. To calculate your monthly allowance, multiply the payout rate for your paygrade, years of service and dependent status by the figure next to duty station in the list of eligible locations found here.
